iGEM Workshops

After the excitement of the Jamboree awards ceremony on Sunday, November 9, we would like to take advantage of having all iGEM participants together to hold a series of iGEM workshops. There will be a chance to get together in smaller groups to talk about a wide range of subjects. Some topics from iGEM 2007 included iGEM in Europe, iGEM alumni, bioinformatics discussions, among others.

Please feel free to suggest a topic if you are interested in leading a discussion. The schedule and available time slots will be up closer to the Jamboree date.
