iGEM Decontamination and sterilization

iGEM has a strict ‘do not release’ policy ( http://2018.igem.org/Safety/Do_not_Release ).

In addition to putting engineered or modified organisms into the environment or the body, it covers any products produced by engineered or modified organisms.

Bringing engineered or modified organisms to the Jamboree is not permitted. Products of such organisms can be brought only with special permission from the Safety Committee. There are strict rules about moving engineered or modified organisms between countries, including detailing how they must be transported and labelled. There are also rules about bringing them into the USA  - so it is not just iGEM’s rules that you need to think about.

To help you develop a decontamination plan and be able to demonstrate to the Safety Committee that it is safe to bring your equipment or material to the Jamboree, below are a few resources. There are many resources available on the internet on sterilization, disinfection and decontamination. We strongly encourage you to explore them in creating a plan which is best for the work you intend to do:
