Teams Hub

Welcome to the Teams Hub! You will find different ways to interact with the rest of the iGEM teams on this page, as well as general team information for the 2021 season.

Team Grants

We are pleased to introduce not one but TWO new grant opportunities for iGEM teams this year! Click here to learn more.

Team Information

Team List

iGEM Team List includes team profiles, titles and abstracts, track selection, team rosters, and more information about the team status.

Team Wikis

All teams are required to create a Team Wiki to document their project. This serves as the public facing representation of each team's work.

Team Parts

Every iGEM team is assigned a set of BioBrick numbers for their Team Parts that they create and work with throughout the iGEM competition.


Meetup & Events Bulletin

Meetups are events where local teams get together to share, collaborate and work together. If you're planning a meetup this year or want to attend one, please visit the Events Bulletin page!

Collaborations Bulletin

Teams can help each other with various aspects of their project through collaborations. If you're looking to find another team to collaborate with, or want to offer help, please take a look at the Collaborations page!

Mentorship Program

Apply for mentorship for your team, or apply to be a team mentor, through the official After iGEM Mentorship Program:

iGEM Global Slack

Join the Global iGEM Slack Workspace to chat with other teams, discover other projects, create collaborations, and help each other out with your scientific (and non scientific) dilemmas. You can also reach out to your regional ambassadors, HQ, and committees for help on Slack.

2021 After iGEM Ambassadors

iGEM Ambassadors are iGEM Alumni who are committed to helping you be a part of the iGEM community. Through the competition season, they will host calls with teams to answer your questions, help you connect with other teams in your region, and provide support for virtual meetups.

The Phoenix Project: Beta - A new tool for browsing previous iGEM Projects! 

Build off a previous iGEM project or find what iGEM teams have done in past years. You can already see a beta-version of our search tool at Take some time to explore and learn from the teams that came before you. Even if you have already selected a project for this year, try to find teams that had similar goals and pick up from where they left off. With questions about the project, our data or how we can help you this year, please reach out to phoenix AT igem DOT org.
