Competition/Deliverables/Safety Forms


5. Safety Forms

Each team must complete and submit the following safety forms during the competition. For more detailed information about the iGEM Safety Program, click here.

Safety Check-In Form

Opens: June 2, 2017

Some organisms and parts present risks beyond what is ordinary for lab work in synthetic biology. As your project progresses, you should consider the risks presented by each organism and part you plan to use. The White List can help you with this.

Before you acquire or use any organism/part that is NOT on the White List, you must submit a Check-In. Check-Ins allow the iGEM Safety Committee to help you ensure that you will work safely with these riskier organisms/parts.

"About Our Lab" Form

Due Date: June 30, 2017

This is a short questionnaire form about the laboratory where you will work on your project, your laboratory space and your safety equipment.

"About Our Project" Form

Due Date: June 30, 2017
Update when your primary project idea changes.

This is a short questionnaire about your primary project idea. Its main purpose is to encourage you to think about the safety of your project as a whole, rather than focusing narrowly on individual parts. It can also help you think about future applications of your project, and what safety health environmental issues would be important to consider.

You should complete the "About Our Project" form, and then revise it if you choose a new primary project idea.

Final Safety Form

Due Date: September 1, 2017

The Final Safety Form is a more comprehensive review of your project, and it must be signed by an Instructor or Primary Contact of your team.
