Collections/Best Basic Part

High-quality basic parts are essential to the Registry. Basic parts are a functional unit of DNA that (usually) cannot be subdivided into smaller component parts. The iGEM community can use these basic parts to create new devices that will be assembled and work predictably.

The following collection contains parts (and teams) that won, or were nominated, for the Best Basic Part award. Generally, these parts:

  • are novel and/or provide a useful function
  • are highly documented and characterized, with data and visualizations that show they work as expected
  • adhere to the iGEM competition's requirements and the Registry's requirements for submissions
