Each of the sign-ups for the tours will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
Please carefully read the descriptions under each tour as they contain important information. Each tour will have volunteers to help guide people to and from the lab locations.
Please contact Alex Herrera via email at email@example.com with any questions.
In this 2-hour biomedical experience, participants will be challenged with creating a protein standard curve and using this standard curve to estimate the concentration of an unknown protein solution. You will be given the same information and instructions that high school students receive during similar CELL experiences. Participants will be tasked with providing feedback and strategies to help us improve this program to engage students successfully with the content.
Participants must pre-register for this activity. A signed Novartis release of claims and liability waiver must be presented upon arrival at the Media Lab. Closed toe shoes and covered legs (i.e.slacks, leggings, long skirts) are required.

iGEM’s main program is the iGEM Competition. The iGEM competition gives students the opportunity to push the boundaries of synthetic biology by tackling everyday issues facing the world. Made up of primarily university students, multidisciplinary teams work together to design, build, test, and measure a system of their own design using interchangeable biological parts and standard molecular biology techniques. Every year nearly 6,000 people dedicate their summer to iGEM and then come together in the fall to present their work and compete at the annual Jamboree.
Anyone with a Bio Summit Participant Badge is welcome to visit the iGEM Giant Jamboree at anytime on Thursday, October 25th.
Additionally, there will be a special guided tour by one of the iGEM organizers.
Spaces are NOT limited.
