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 out personal information, including email addresses.
We love hearing from iGEM teams and other members of our community! Please note: Our normal business hours are Monday-Friday 9am-5pm EST.

iGEM HQ This week we celebrated Vinoo’s 10 year anniversary at iGEM Headquarters.
Vinoo was hired back in 2009 when iGEM was still in MIT. From wrangling robots into creating thousands of DNA distribution kits for the past decade, to now directing the Registry of Standard Biological Parts, iGEM would truly not be the same without him. Thank you, Vinoo!
