VGEM is a group of undergraduate students who collaborate in synthetic biology research to participate in the annual International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition. Come see what we do!
We are a group of students who are passionate about research. We are engineers, biologists, and biochemists. See who currently makes up the 2014 iGEM team.
Our projects are student led. This year, we engineered a biofilter out of E. coli bacteria that filters out microplastics out of wastewater.
The current Virginia iGEM team selects the members of each new generation of teams each year. See what our predecessors have accomplished.
