The iGEM GO Paris-Saclay team in the spotlight

The GO Paris Saclay 2018 team, hosted in the Institute and supervised by researchers from the I2BC, is composed of 12 students including mathematicians, biologists and pharmacists.

iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) is an international student competition created in 2004 by MITto promote synthetic biology. Teams of university students must be multidisciplinary and work together to design, build, test and measure a system of their own design using interchangeable biological parts and standard molecular biology techniques. Every year nearly 6,000 people dedicate their summer to iGEM and then come together in the fall to present their work and compete at the annual Jamboree.

The team Go_Paris Saclay has been participating in the competition since 2012 (with the exception of 2017) and has been awarded regularly. It is housed in I2BC premises and is supervised by researchers from the institute.
Team 2018’s project focuses on the treatment of water contaminated with one of the most dangerous and abundant anti-cancer drugs in wastewater, Methotrexate.
