We host and mentor NDSU’s inaugural iGEM (international genetically engineered machine) team as of the 2021 competition year. The iGEM Competition (https://igem.org/) is an undergraduate, high school and graduate focused world-wide synthetic biology event. Teams design and execute their own research project and present their results at an annual jamboree in the fall.
Team NDSU won a bronze medal for their project engineering a microbe-based protection of soybeans from the pathogen Rhizoctinia Solanii . Check out the 2021 team website for more information!
