Use Science To Solve A World Problem! Students We Need You...

About this Event

Join this kick off session to find about how you can join the The iGem Team to represent Coventry University in this international competition.

What is the iGem competition?

Universities from across the world enter teams to use synthetic biology to solve a world problem.

Student teams are given a kit of biological parts and work over the summer to build and test biological systems in living cells, ranging from bacteria to mammalian cells.

An example is genetically modifying bacteria to break down fat-burgs in sewers.

What skills would help?

The team need students from across faculties to bring together skills in sociology, marketing, website creation, communication and more so all faculties are welcome to apply.

Current Undergraduate Coventry University students are the focus for this session. But if you feel you have skills that could help the team come along and see how you could get involved.
