Prof. Blank - coordinator of P4SB - is attending the iGEM 2015 Giant Jamboree (http://2015.igem.org/Giant_Jamboree). The Giant Jamboree is the annual event where all of the collegiate and high school iGEM teams come together to present their synthetic biology projects. This year more than 260 international, multidisciplinary teams are eager to share and celebrate their work.
The iGEM competition encourages university and high school student researchers to work in teams and solve real-world challenges by building genetically engineered biological systems with standard, interchangeable parts called BioBricks from the Registry of Standard Biological Parts. Each team manages their own projects, advocates for their research, and secures funding. Teams are also challenged to actively consider and address the safety, security and environmental implications of their work.
