- International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) is a student-led competition to build the most innovative "machine" by synthetic biology.
- Headquarters is located at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
- In 2006, 37 schools and over 400 students from around the world are participating in projects to construct biologically engineered systems.
- Task of each team is to apply engineering methodology to design and develop a new biological system ("machine") through the use of existing and/or newly formed microscopic biological parts (termed BioBricks).
- Type of the "machine" is chosen by each individual school participating, and the only criterion is that the "machine" be made entirely of the functional units of DNA called BioBricks.
- A registry of all BioBricks is kept in the MIT Registry of Standard Biological Parts, which is regularly updated to include new parts developed by teams.
- Parts for each iGEM team are obtained through the Registry for a fee.
- Jamboree for students to present their projects will take place at MIT in November.
