This year, we CLEARED all Medal Criteria!

Gold Medal

  • Choose one of these two options: (1) Expand on your silver medal Human Practices activity by demonstrating how you have integrated the investigated issues into the design and/or execution of your project. OR (2) Demonstrate an innovative Human Practices activity that relates to your project.

    See our Policy & Practice pagefor more details.

  • Help any registered iGEM team from a high-school, different track, another university, or institution in a significant way by, for example, mentoring a new team, characterizing a part, debugging a construct, modeling/simulating their system or helping validate a software/hardware solution to a synbio problem.

  • What we've done:collaborations with other teams from abroad, teach the tips of team management.
    See our Collaboration pagefor details.

  • Improve the function OR characterization of a previously existing BioBrick Part or Device (created by another team, or by your own team in in a previous year of iGEM), and enter this information in the part's page on the Registry. BBa_K1631000 and BBa_K629003

Silver Medal

  • Experimentally validate that at least one new BioBrick Part or Device of your own design and construction works as expected. Document the characterization of this part in the Main Page section of the Registry entry for that Part/Device: BBa_K1631012 , BBa_K1631018 and BBa_K1631020

  • Submit this new part to the iGEM Parts Registry: BBa_K1631012 , BBa_K1631018 and BBa_K1631020
