There is only ONE week left until the wiki freeze! Be sure to finalize all of your information on the iGEM wiki and the Registry before the deadline so that the judges can review your project.

The judging form is also due on October 21 at 11:59pm, EDT. The form will be released shortly so keep checking for updates.

Show off your team spirit!

The Jamboree is less than a month away, and although you must be busy with preparations, you should also think about your team t-shirts. You're representing your team and university, so why not show off!

Design and wear your team t-shirt, especially for the iGEM from Above photograph. And since this year's Jamboree falls on Halloween (October 31) weekend, it'll be fun to have a team costume or mascot.
