With Biobytes 2.0 as the basis we have developed an Educational Toolkit for the high school classroom. We have put a great deal of thought and experimentation into the contents of the kit and tried to make it as self sufficient as possible. We have packaged a number of tools with the kit that make it easy to get started. And we have built a large selection of parts using biobytes and developed several experiments, some even based on past projects from various IGEM teams!

As the genomikon kit was created for the high school learning environment there were a number design challenges that needed to be overcome. Specifically the high school lacks sterilization equipment and laboratory machinery. These issues are solved by sending all parts that must be sterile pre-sterilized.

Just add a hotplate to complete all the experiments you find at

Check out all the parts in the diagram below! [diagram of kit]
