iGEM logoiGEM medal success

The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition is an annual event inspiring thousands of students to build a better world by solving problems with the help of synthetic biology. In November 2020, the Warwick iGEM team secured a gold medal at the iGEM Virtual Giant Jamboree for their colibactin detection kit. SLS team members were Tudor Onose, Jade Oh, Valeriia Nadmitova, Adriana Lopez Gonzalez, Grace Goater and Andris Gyori. They were joined by undergraduates from Maths and Computer Science.
