iGEM 2020!

iGEM 2020: An exceptional year

This is not a normal year. Together, we are facing the biggest pandemic in the past 100 years. Based on your feedback, we are adapting the iGEM experience - we have examined each part of the competition to make it even better this year. This is iGEM in the time of a pandemic. It will be different but it will be worth it.

Metal Binding and Sensing Parts

Every year, a number of iGEM teams complete a variety of biosensors and bioremediation projects that involve metal-binding and metal-sensing. Their focus may be on several pollutants or just one. iGEM teams have worked with metals like nickel, mercury, lead, arsenic, copper, amongst others.

We've put together a collection of projects and DNA parts that are responsible for both metal binding and metal sensing.
