We are undergraduate students at the University of Virginia 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.
Our projects are student led. This year, we are modifying E. coli bacteria Autoinducer-2 (AI-2) quorum sensing system by upregulating AI-2 synthesis and excretion to reduce variability in induced gene expression.
The current Virginia iGEM team selects the next members of the team each year. See what our predecessors have accomplished.
