Genetically Engineered Machines Competition: Super Mario

iGEM stands for International Genetically Engineered Machines and this is quite an interesting and unique competition organized by MIT for university-level students.

Each team is provided with a kit of genetic ‘parts’, which they can use to construct new parts, and design biological systems and devices to produce desired functions in living cells. Starting from 2004, this will be held with over 112 teams from over 20 countries participating.
