For the Kuulpeeps out there, iGEM stands for Internationally Genetically Engineered Machine.
It is an academic competition aimed at improving people’s understanding of synthetic biology while also developing an open community and collaboration between groups.
This year, Ashesi got the opportunity to take part in the competition. The pioneer engineering class made up of 2019s are representing. They are Abdul Ghaffar, Stephan Ofosuhene, Nana Oye Djan, Claude-Noel Tamakloe, Miquilina Anagbah, and David Sasu.
Earlier today, they had to present to the iGem community on what they have been working on in the past couple of months. It looks like they really nailed their presentation, from the twitter post by iGem.
We wish them all the best in the competition.
