I am looking for second and third year undergraduate and MSc students for the first ever Manchester iGEM team.

The International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Foundation is an MIT spin-out which is dedicated to education and competition, advancement of synthetic biology, and the development of open community and collaboration.

Could you please bring this flyer to the attention of your students:
