This page is your opportunity to explain what parts of your project you did and what was done by technicians, advisers, etc. This requirement is not about literature references - these can and should be displayed throughout your wiki.
Bronze Medal Criterion #3
All of the work done in your project must be attributed correctly on this page. You must clearly state the work that was done by the students on your team and note any work that was done by people outside of your team, including the host labs, advisors, instructors, and individuals not on the team roster.
Please see the Medals requirements page for more details.
What should this page contain?
- Clearly state what the team accomplished
- General Support
- Project support and advice
- Fundraising help and advice
- Lab support
- Difficult technique support
- Project advisor support
- Wiki support
- Presentation coaching
- Human Practices support
- Thanks and acknowledgements for all other people involved in helping make a successful iGEM team
Tell us if your institution teaches an iGEM or synthetic biology class and when you started your project:
- Does your institution teach an iGEM or synthetic biology course?
- When did you start this course?
- Are the syllabus and course materials freely available online?
- When did you start your brainstorming?
- When did you start in the lab?
- When did you start working on your project?
Why is this page needed?
The Attribution requirement helps the judges know what you did yourselves and what you had help with. We don't mind if you get help with difficult or complex techniques, but you must report what work your team did and what work was done by others.
For example, you might choose to work with an animal model during your project. Working with animals requires getting a license and applying far in advance to conduct certain experiments in many countries. This is difficult to achieve during the course of a summer, but much easier if you can work with a postdoc or PI who has the right licenses.
Can we base our project on a previous one?
Yes! You can have a project based on a previous team, or based on someone else's idea, as long as you state this fact very clearly and give credit for the original project.
