This competition is to encourage and support student teams from India to participate in the worldwide synthetic biology competition, the iGEM [international Genetically Engineered Machine].
Who Can Apply:
The concepts may be received from undergraduate and postgraduate students with a mentor from the same Institution. The team of students applying from a particular institute would be encouraged, though not mandatory.
Broad Parameters That Define A Work As ‘Synthetic Biology’:
- Inclusion Criteria
Rational design of biological components that include construction of standard parts (DNA, RNA, Protein), devices (modules e.g. operon, transcription factor complex) and circuits (pathways/networks).
- Exclusion Criteria
Standard molecular biology studies that do not map to the rational design approach
- Maximum of 10 member team, including a mentor with credible experience -Proposal based on pre-existing iGEM parts.
