Outreach & Engaged Scholarship
Primary Theme: Information, Society & Culture
Rapid advances in synthetic and systems biology, metabolic and enzyme engineering and nanotechnology are having profound impacts on biotechnology and related engineering fields. The Duke Undergraduate International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Team was founded to stimulate and nurture students’ interest in science and engineering and prepare them to be future leaders in these emerging fields. iGEM is dedicated to advancing the state of synthetic biology both in and out of the lab.
