Welcome to the iGEM Network!


The iGEM Network is a community platform developed by the iGEM Foundation for anyone who has gone through the competition since its inception in 2004. The network is a part of After iGEM, a program dedicated to over 45,000 iGEMers - students and instructors - who have participated in the program over the past 16 years.


Where are you? What are you up to? How did iGEM affect your world?


Join the iGEM Network to (re)connect with this powerful community, to join programs created exclusively for you, to take what you learned in the competition and expand that to continue to build a better world!
