Conferences and Activities

With the aim of promoting synthetic biology and the promotion of iGem projects and their applications in various areas, the team iGEM UANL made many and varied activities exhibitions, talks, lectures and dynamic activities. Each activity was strategically planned to educate in a fun and original way the kids, young and grown-ups about synthetic biology and their applications as iGEM projects. Review the following sections and find out the activities that were carried out!

School Visits

One of the many ways to achieve a better diffusion of iGEM and Synthetic Biology is through students. We gave a presentation/talk that addressed students in a clear, simple and concise way; we also performed some experimental demonstration, like banana DNA extraction and the simulation of an iGEM competition.


SynBio Conference

As part of the 60th anniversary of our Biology School (UANL) celebration events, the iGEM UANL team invited the President of the Mexican Association of Synthetic Biology, MC Geronimo Villanueva for a talk to discuss topics such as: Synthetic Biology, iGEM and projects, The current state of Mexico in the area of Synthetic Biology, BioBricks and Parts Registry.


Synthetic Rally

Following the objective to promote the importance and impact of Synthetic Biology, inform about the interesting applications through a funny, entertaining, educative and original activity, we made this rally to allow students learn and enjoy the experience of Synthetic Biology in a very “Silence” way, playing thematic games which can help them understand some difficult concepts.


Chemistry Conference

During the commemoration event to the International Chemistry Year, organized by the “Centro de Investigación y Desarrollo de Educación Bilingüe” (CIDEB), conferences planned took place by the IGEM-UANL team respect to the Chemistry, IGEM and Synthetic Biology during the 2 days of the event. This conferences were given to the students belonged to the Progressive Baccalaureate and the International Baccalaureate in the Principle Auditorium of the High School.


Poster Exhibitions

Both teams (IGEM-UANL and IGEM-CIDEB) were invited by the “Asociación Estudiantil de Biotecnología Genómica” from the FCB (AsEBioGen) to the poster exposition because of the LBG Week (Genomics and Biotechnology Career Week), celebrated in the central hall of the Faculty, where the projects done were exposed: HuBac y E. cologic as well as Human Practices in the case of the UANL team and Kumus with the CIDEB team.
