4. Deliverables

Every iGEM team is responsible for completing Deliverables #1-6 listed below. These items are used to evaluate your team, in addition to the other medal and award criteria. Failure to complete these deliverables may impact your team’s chances at winning medals and prizes during the Giant Jamboree. Failure to complete Deliverable #6 Safety Forms will result in your team's disqualification from the competition.

Deliverables #1-5 will help your team achieve a Bronze Medal. In particular, Deliverables #1-4 go towards Bronze Medal Criteria #2 and Deliverable #5 goes toward Bronze Medal Criteria #3.

Deliverables #7 and 8 are specific for new parts that your team will design during your project. We encourage all teams to submit their new parts to the Registry of Standard Biological Parts. In particular, Deliverables #7 and #8 are required if you are working towards Silver Medal Criteria #1, working towards Gold Medal Criteria #2, or any of the specific Part Prizes.

Please refer to the 2018 Calendar for details on all deadlines mentioned below.

4.1 Competition Deliverables

1. Team Wiki

Bronze Medal Criteria

Due Date: October 17, 11:59PM EDT

Teams need to document their project on their Wiki page. This page is the public face of your project. Since it is hosted on the iGEM servers, no content will ever get lost and you will still be able to share the website after the competition.

2. Team Poster

Bronze Medal Criteria

Due Date: Giant Jamboree

Each team is given one poster slot and the poster cannot exceed these dimensions: 4 ft. X 4 ft. (1.22 m X 1.22 m). Students must present the poster during the scheduled Poster Sessions at the Giant Jamboree.

4. Judging Form

Bronze Medal Criteria

Due Date: October 12, 11:59PM EDT

Since iGEM is a competition, teams will be judged on their projects during the Giant Jamboree. Teams fill out their own Judging Form. The Judging Form will be sent to the judges so they can evaluate your team for prizes and awards.

5. Project Attributions

Bronze Medal Criteria

Due Date: October 17, 11:59PM EDT
