University of Toronto International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM Toronto) St George

iGEM Toronto is an undergraduate synthetic biology design team. We design anything related to synthetic biology from genetic circuits to biofilms to plastic-degrading enzymes to rapid DNA detection kits. We showcase our project in the iGEM Grand Jamboree every October where iGEM teams from over 300 universities around the globe also present their work.

iGEM Toronto provides undergraduate engineering students with an interdisciplinary environment to work on projects in synthetic biology. Throughout the project cycle (January to October), our members closely interact with professionals, such as professors and PhD students in the area of our project, to design projects, execute experiment plans, learn the biology concepts, analyze lab results and explore lab techniques. We provide opportunities to collaborate with local stakeholders and iGEM teams of other Canadian or international universities. These are valuable for students who are interested in pursuing academia as career. Each year, our team is committed to present research results to an international audience of like-minded students and professionals in the synthetic biology industry.
