iGEM 2018 Sponsorship

IDT is excited to partner with iGEM for the sixth year and to offer participating teams 20 kb in free DNA.

We are offering 20 kb of gBlocks® Gene Fragments or equivalent value in CRISPR Genome Editing products, free of charge, to all officially registered iGEM 2018 teams.* Once registration with iGEM and IDT is confirmed, your team will receive IDT credit for the value equivalent to twenty 1000 bp gBlocks Gene Fragments calculated in your local currency, to purchase IDT products. Promotion registration expires August 31, 2018 and the last day to order is October 14, 2018.

gBlocks Gene Fragments are high-fidelity, double-stranded DNA fragments (125–3000 bp) that can be used for easy gene assembly, genome editing, qPCR standards, and much more.

"With this offer, iGEM teams will live in the future of synthetic biology, where the cost and effort of obtaining the required DNA constructs are no longer limiting factors. Thanks to IDT, the teams can focus on imagining, engineering, and testing the novel devices they create to solve important world problems. This is the promise of DNA synthesis and the future of the industry."
