iGEM Prizes

  • Best Human Practice Advance
    • iGEM Kyoto suggested "Human Practice iGEM Japan" project to other iGEM teams in Japan and cooperated with them to survey people's opinions about synthetic biology in several areas.
  • Best Experimental Measurement
  • Best Model
    • iGEM kyoto established a standard method for a quantitative measurement of lytic activity, and define it as LAS(Lytic Activity Score).
