iGEM is great and getting better. This year 215 collegiate teams and 30 high school teams participated from around the world. With that many teams, it would take over a week to study what they did! So, we have done it for you. You will can read a review of iGEM 2013 including team highlights, statistics, and stories. You will also find the audited financial statement for our last fiscal year.
