Previous Years

2005 In the summer of 2005, the iGEM competition became an international event. A record 13 teams worked on projects involving chemotaxis regulation systems, cell-cell genetic communications systems, cellular/biological wires, thermometers, biological sketch pads (drawing systems), cellular relay races, a digital counter, and more.

2004 This year marked the first true Synthetic Biology Competition. Teams from five schools competed to build cellular state machines and counters. The teams came together for a jamboree in early November to compare their results. The most graphic project was "photographic biofilm" that could capture an image (now called coliroid film). More
2004 During MIT's Independent Activity Periods (IAP), MIT-based teams designed genetic systems to create cellular patterns varying from bull’s-eyes to polka dots, and even dynamic designs where cells would swim together. From these designs, many standard biological parts (BioBricks) were designed and synthesized. More
2003 During the 2003 IAP, students designed biological oscillators coupled to fluorescent reporters. These genetic blinkers were intended to improve on Elowitz's Repressilator. One team coupled two oscillators to even out the oscillations. Another used cell-cell signaling to coordinate the oscillators in a colony. More
