Poster Requirements

  • Each team can present one (1) poster during the Giant Jamboree

  • Teams must submit a PDF copy of their poster to iGEM Headquarters at the Giant Jamboree (details on how to submit will be provided closer to the Giant Jamboree)

Poster Guidelines

In iGEM, the purpose of the poster is to communicate the project to others in a very concise, yet engaging manner. Many posters in the past have been “busy” and “unbalanced” with regards to text, figures, and space. Although past winning posters may not have had this balance, it will be an important criterion in judging this year and in future iGEM Jamborees.

Expected iGEM Poster Components

Teams should plan to have the following components on their poster in some manner:

  • Title
  • Team
  • Authors and their Affiliated Institution(s)
  • Introduction
  • Methodology
  • Results/Conclusions
  • Acknowledgments
  • Funding Attributions (if applicable)

Past iGEM teams have also elected to include additional components on their posters such as:

  • Abstract
  • Objectives
  • Motivation
  • Team Achievements
  • Future Directions
  • Human Practices
  • Parts Submitted
