Microbiology Undergraduates Part of UW team That Wins
2011 iGEM Competition

Congratulations to the University of Washington International Genetically

2011 iGEM competition! The competition included 160 undergraduate
teams from around the world. On November 8th

teams that advanced from regional competitions convened at MIT to
compete their summer projects. After deliberation, an international panel
of judges awarded the UW the grand prize, the first time ever a team from
the U.S. has won the award. iGEM is the premiere synthetic biology
competition for undergraduates. Student teams receive a set of biological
parts at the beginning of the summer from the Registry of Standard
Biological Parts, and are expected to use these as well as parts they have
constructed to generate novel biological systems. This year, the UW iGEM
team worked on three main projects. For their first goal, they developed an
