iGEM Team Sponsorship

The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition is the largest competition of students in the field of synthetic biology. Every Spring since 2004, interdisciplinary teams from all over the world are formed who design and build biological systems that address a pressing environmental, scientific or societal need. They all have a single goal, receiving one of the Gold Medals at the Giant Jamboree held in Boston, MA in October.

Arbor Biosciences, a leading provider of research tools for the synthetic biology community, identifies with the hard work, dedication, and time that all participating students put into their projects. By connecting with young professionals training to be the next generation of scientists and innovators, we recognize their commitment to develop and improve   the scientific world.
