show off your team spirit!

iGEM Team Spirit

The 2010 Jamboree is coming up, and although you must be busy with preparations, you should also think about your team spirit. At the Jamboree you will be representing your team, university, and country, so why not show off!

Show your team spirit by designing and wearing your team t-shirts. Try something a little bit different and bring along a team mascot. Get creative and colorful!
