At 47 team members, iGEM Guelph has never had such a big group working towards our shared goal. Many students joined our team this year in order to find ways to work in a lab during the pandemic. We provided them with that, but to ensure that we would not lose the sense of community that we have had with a small group in previous years, we created the Collaboration Team. We started with collaborating internally, putting together newsletters, game nights, and sharing information across all of our fields of study.
Eventually though, our team wanted to branch out and collaborate with others, on a global scale. Through two large collaborations, we have now worked with over 80 teams across the globe during this competition year. On this page, you can find the end products of those collaborations.
