About the Global Alliance
Through the iGEM competition, iGEMers learn and apply core values: integrity; good sportsmanship; respect; honesty; celebration; cooperation; effort; and excellence. They also learn the importance of engaging and including the public in the scientific conversation; and the power of working together to solve gaps in the bioeconomy. Many iGEMers take these learnings and values to continue making an impact in their local communities, through regional associations and other informal organizations. The Global Alliance of SynBio Associations wants to recognize the contribution of these communities to society and to the advancement of synthetic biology.
