The Michigan Synthetic Biology Team (MSBT) is a student-lead club that enters the annual International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition in Boston. Students work together to design a project using the most cutting-edge technology and carry out self-lead experiments in lab to perfect it's design. Through independent research, experimental design, collaborative brainstorming, community outreach, active fundraising, and exploration into public-policy, members of the Michigan Synthetic Biology Team gain, not only the hard skills necessary to do lab work, but also the ability to navigate through the complex problems that arise during experimentation.  (Read more about MSBT in the LSA article.)

Congratulations MSBT!
