Connect with the iGEM Community

One of the most common requests we receive from teams is the ability to easily contact other teams, which usually means people requesting email addresses. This is a challenging request for us since we respect the privacy of our registered iGEM account users and thus don't give our personal information, including email addresses.

New for 2016, we are implementing a new iGEM phpBB Forum to help teams contact each other and easily have discussions with members of the iGEM community.

iGEM Forum

We have a page dedicated to iGEM Community related projects and information for easy access to the current community work being done.
