DNA Distribution Kit
Each team will receive a copy of the DNA Distribution Kit. This kit has a curated selection of the best parts teams have built and resources to help iGEMers test their competent cells and submit samples to us at the end of the season.
We expect to begin the Distribution Kit shipment process for our 2017 iGEM teams in mid-April.

Get & Give Philosophy
The Registry is an open community that runs and grows on the "Get & Give (& Share)" philosophy. Users get parts, samples, data, and tools from the Registry to work on their synthetic biology projects. They'll give back to the Registry the new parts they've made, as well as data and experience on new and existing parts. Finally, users will share experience and collaborate in the Registry's open community through their wikis and other social tools.
