Best Hardware Special Prize

In addition to encouraging teams to work with DNA parts and build biological devices in the lab, iGEM also encourages other types of technical solutions for synthetic biology. This can include physical devices (hardware) related to robotic assembly, microfluidics, low-cost measurement devices, to name a few examples. There are many exciting opportunities for hardware innovation in synthetic biology.

Teams who are interested in working with hardware in their project, or as a side project, are encouraged to apply for the Best Hardware award.

To compete for the Best Hardware prize, please describe your work on this page and also fill out the description on the judging form.
