Synthetic and Systems Biotechnology

Special Issue on the 2019 and 2020 iGEM Proceedings

We are excited to share the published papers from iGEMers through our collaboration with Synthetic and Systems Biotechnology in the special issue on The 2019 and 2020 iGEM Proceedings.

Over the past 18 years, the iGEM Competition has provided a platform to catalyse the infusion of synthetic biology with interdisciplinary fundamental and translational research as well as with inspired young scientists from all around the world. Many of the projects undertaken by iGEM teams have gone on to be published in academic journals. As shown recently in the iGEM Comes of Age: Trends in its research output paper by the Academia & Research steering group.

Through such collaborations we want to continue our commitment to continued education of iGEMers after the competition by providing them an opportunity to publish their scientific research in a peer-reviewed journal filled entirely with iGEM Projects!
