The CSU iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine competition) team gives undergraduate students a chance to participate in student-driven research in the area of synthetic biology. Synthetic biology is an emerging field that spans many different disciplines. The iGEM team historically has attracted sophomores and juniors to participate in undergraduate research. The students have significant input into selecting the project that they pursue. The projects are viewed as a two year project where at the end of the project the students get to present their work at the iGEM “Giant Jamboree” which occurs every fall inBoston. This is an international research competition with over 250 teams that compete from allover the world. Each team does both an oral and poster presentation of their work.
