IGEM 2009 Participant and Team Registration
IGEM 2009 is over. To register for iGEM 2010, click here.
This is the central page for iGEM 2009 registration. From here, you can create your own personal account, create or join a normal team, and enter all of the information needed to participate in iGEM 2009. In March, we will have a separate registration page for Do-It-Yourself and other non-competition teams.
Step 1 - Learn about the registration process
Registration for iGEM includes registering users, registering teams, maintaining team rosters, distinguishing instructors from students, paying team fees, shipping the DNA kit of parts, registering for the Jamboree, and even more. We have prepared a registration handbook that explains this.
Step 2 - Create or update your iGEM account
Every participant in iGEM 2009 needs a user account. This one account will let you apply for a new team, give you access to the tools of the Registry, let you add or edit parts, and let you edit the contents of the iGEM and Registry Wikis. If you already have an account, please update it with additional information for iGEM 2009.
Step 3 - Join an existing team or register a new team
Your team may already have applied to iGEM 2009. Once its application is accepted, you can join the team using a membership code given to you by one of the team leaders or by applying for membership and waiting for approval from the team leader. A team's primary faculty contact may apply for a new iGEM team.
Step 4 - Continue or review team registration
Anyone may review the team registration and any team leader may update the team information. The primary contact will need to provide a brief resource description to show that they understand the resources that will be required.
Step 5 - What happens next
For new teams, iGEM Headquarters will verify the basic registration information and may contact the team leader for more information before accepting the application. For new users, once your account is approved and your team's application is accepted, you will be able to use all the software tools.
