To Our Community
We at iGEM Headquarters want to take a moment to remind everyone that we are truly an international and diverse community. We take our values seriously and believe the international aspect of iGEM is a large part of what makes iGEM a success. Like many of you, we have been paying close attention to recent events in the United States and will continue to do so in the coming weeks and months. We have begun and will continue to have discussions here at HQ with the focus on making sure all of our teams can participate openly in iGEM. If you have any concerns or suggestions, please send us a message at hq AT igem DOT org.
