iGEM Toronto 2017 Wet Lab Application
Thank you for your interest in applying to be a part of iGEM’s summer research team. Please read this application carefully. Each summer (May-September), iGEM team members research, design, and execute a self-directed synthetic biology project with the intent to build BioBricks useful within the general scientific community. After a summer of hard work, we showcase our research at the iGEM Jamboree, an international competition in Boston which features top universities from around the world. Find out more at http://www.igem.org/Main_Page.

For this year’s competition we are looking to build a dedicated group of scientists from all backgrounds and skills to win another medal at the Jamboree this coming November. The most important things we are looking for are passion for science and ability to follow through.

If you have questions, please email: igem@g.skule.ca
