After iGEM | SynBio Associations

Global Alliance of Regional SynBio Associations


About the Alliance

Did you know that there are more than 45,000 iGEM Alumni across the world? Through the competition, iGEMers learn and apply our core values: integrity; good sportsmanship; respect; honesty; celebration; cooperation; effort; and excellence. They also learn the importance of engaging and including our society in the scientific conversation; and the power of working together to solve gaps in the bio-economy. Many iGEMers take these learnings and values to continue making an impact in their local communities, through regional associations and other informal organizations.

We want to recognize the contribution of these communities to our society and to the advancement of synthetic biology.
