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 openscience@igem.org
