Biological engineering differs from other engineering fields like electrical engineering by its lack of functional and structural modularity. When you transfer a gene of one organism to another, its behavior will probably change! iGEM strives to simplify biological engineering through its Registry of Standard Biological Parts, a collection of genetic parts that can be combined to build biological systems. By creating modularity and standardization in this collection of parts, the parts will be more predictable in different contexts. By contributing to this Registry, we hope to share our knowledge and allow anyone to use our parts!
