Mission & Vision

This topic used to be organized by a specific group formed by iGEM Community Working Group volunteers, who work on connecting iGEMers in the topic field, collecting and curating the existing topical resources, and developing initiatives geared towards creating an impact to the topic fields related to synthetic biology. Starting from 2023, working groups will be formed based on specific projects and we will keep presenting all the topic-relevant projects and activities on this page.

You can contact the group at bioart@igem.org


  • Our main goal is to connect with the iGEM community and non-expert public, bringing a learning opportunity by a curated narrative for SynBio and iGEM culture showcase.
  • Get in touch with more multi-diverse teams with creative minds learning synthetic biology.
  • The new value proposition for the Jamboree experience. Generating a new entertainment event for the attendees.
  • Get recognition and support from Art, Design, and Biology communities.
  • Get a board of advisors formed by curators, artists, designers, and relevant people in the field, to expand iGEM networks.
  • Explore synbio-art narratives that teams have created through their projects in the iGEM history and inspire the students' lead generation by adding creatives for next year.
