This year Team Minnesota has been very active in collaborating with different iGEM teams. We contributed to Team Eindhoven's cloning guide by providing information on yeast recombinational cloning. This way future iGEM teams have a manual explaining how different cloning methods work so they can explore which technique is best for their project. We also helped Team Aachen, Michigan Software, Paris-Saclay, and Santa Clara by providing data and filling out their respective survey. Lastly, we helped Team Egypt by mentoring their new team.
Which other teams can we work with?
You can work with any other team in the competition, including software, hardware, high school and other tracks. You can also work with non-iGEM research groups, but they do not count towards the iGEM team collaboration gold medal criterion.
In order to meet the gold medal criteria on helping another team, you must complete this page and detail the nature of your collaboration with another iGEM team.
Here are some suggestions for projects you could work on with other teams:
- Improve the function of another team's BioBrick Part or Device
- Characterize another team's part
- Debug a construct
- Model or simulating another team's system
- Test another team's software
- Help build and test another team's hardware project
- Mentor a high-school team
