★iGEM projects involve important questions beyond the bench, for example relating to (but not limited to) ethics, sustainability, social justice, safety, security, and intellectual property rights. We refer to these activities as Human Practices in iGEM. We have described our human practices in the Outreach page.

★Help any registered iGEM team from another school or institution by, for example, characterizing a part, debugging a construct, or modeling or simulating their system. See our Collaborations page for details on our collaboration.
★Demonstrate an innovative Human Practices activity that relates to your project. This typically involves educational, public engagement, and/or public perception activities. For our expanded human practices, please visit our Outreach page.
