Have you ever wondered how to make a glow in the dark plant? Or how to make yoghurt that flavours itself? Do you want to learn how to build with biology and develop your own project over the summer?

iGEM is an annual student competition where multidisciplinary teams from across the globe design, model, build, and test genetically engineered machines, software and technology to do amazing things.  Over the three sessions of the iGEM sandpit we’ll introduce you to synthetic biology and explore how engineering biology can address real societal challenges.  Come and join us and see if you want apply to be part of the team this summer and hack biological systems for fun!

We recommend that you attend all three sessions as it is designed to run over the three days as a workshop.

This event may be photographed and/or recorded for promotional or recruitment materials for the University and University approved third parties. For further information please contact the organiser.
