2022 iGEM Teams Pairing


As the Jamboree will be a hybrid-event this year, there will be iGEMers and iGEM teams joining the in-person activities in Paris, and those who will be participating remotely. We will be pairing both with each other for a series of fun-activities in the lead up to the Jamboree and during the Jamboree, and enjoy our time together.

We have created a channel on the 2022 Global Slack #grand-jamboree for iGEMers and iGEM teams joining in person and those participating remotely. Here we will be pairing one in-person team with one-remote team and kick-off the excitement! If you still haven’t joined the 2022 iGEM Global Slack, you can do it by signing up on this link
