User and Lab Registration

This is the central page for Registry of Standard Biological Parts Lab registration. From here, you can create your own personal account, create or join a normal lab, and enter all of the information needed to participate in the iGEM and Registry system.

Step 1 - Learn about the registration process

Registration of a Lab includes registering users, registering the lab, maintaining lab rosters, distinguishing instructors from students, paying any lab fees, shipping the DNA kit of parts, and even more. We have prepared a registration handbook that explains this.

Step 2 - Create or update your personal account

Every user of the Registry needs a user account. This one account will let you apply for a new lab, 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 use that account and update it with additional information for this year.
Please log in or apply for an account

Step 3 - Join an existing lab or register a new lab

Your lab may already have applied to IGEM Headquarters. Once its application is accepted, you can join the lab using a membership code given to you by one of the lab leaders or by applying for membership and waiting for approval from the lab leader. A lab's primary faculty contact may apply for a new lab.

Step 4 - Continue or review lab registration

Anyone may review the lab registration and any lab leader may update the lab 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 labs, iGEM Headquarters will verify the basic registration information and may contact the lab leader for more information before accepting the application. For new users, once your account is approved and your lab's application is accepted, you will be able to use all the software tools.
