- The Non-traditional team option is for those who wish to participate in iGEM on an individual basis either in a wetlab/experimental capacity or in a software tools role. This first year is a trial run to extend the iGEM and Jamboree experience to participants who otherwise cannot take part in iGEM in a traditional role on a team. Participants in this category will be required to apply, be accepted, and register just as traditional iGEM teams do. A registration fee does apply ($500 USD), as does the normal Jamboree attendance fee ($400 USD). Each participant will be given to opportunity to give a 5-minute presentation as well as to present their work on a poster during the Jamboree.
