iGEM is an international synthetic biology competition in which teams design and implement engineered biological-based systems to address basic or applied problems. These creative solutions are then evaluated during an international competition with teams from universities from all over the world. The EPFL iGEM team consists of an interdisciplinary group of at most 12 students (both undergraduate and masters) from different schools which collaborate to bring biological, silicon and material components together to solve problems in select areas such as diagnostics, energy, environment, food & nutrition and therapeutics.
The EPFL team in 2019 won the global event among 300 universities participating
