Add and Document PartsStart adding and documenting your parts now! Your parts should be well characterized and measured, and follow the Registry's requirements.
Registry Freeze!This year, the iGEM Parts Registry will also freeze alongside the team wikis on November 1 11:59PM EDT. Don't wait till the last minute to update your part pages!
Group: Team Imperial 2014, and others
The 2014 Imperial iGEM team created a bacterial cellulose filter for their Aqualose project. They wanted to produce flexible, and pollution-specific filters to aid in water sanitation. They created a set of well-documented cellulose binding domains, paired with reporter genes (GFP) and metal binding domains.
Many other teams have also worked with cellulose, so check out the cellulose related parts collection.
The iGEM Registry has over 20,000 documented parts. The Catalog organizes many of these parts by part type, chassis, function, and more. Browse for parts through the Registry Catalog or use the search menu.
2017 DNA Distribution
The iGEM 2017 DNA Distribution has started shipping! We've added some new material this year, so be sure to read through the 2017 Distribution Handbook for storage instructions and how to use your kit!
We've updated the Registry part collections. Users can discover new parts and collections and build upon what previous iGEM teams and labs have achieved.
Before starting your projects, be sure to read through our help pages. If you can't find an answer to your question, contact hq (at) igem . org.
