Jamboree Fee

Each member of your team must be registered to attend the iGEM 2007 Jamboree November 3-4, 2007 at MIT, Cambridge, MA. There is a $100.00 U.S. fee for each undergraduate student team member and a $225.00 U.S. fee for each graduate student, instructor, or other attendee. You can register your team and pay the fee at the [registration page]]. Note that the information you provide about your team on the registration page is used to generate your team's badges, so be sure it is correct! The deadline for registration is October 1, 2007. Jamboree attendance fees received after October 1, 2007 will increase by $50.00 US per person.

The 2007 Jamboree includes an optional workshop session on Sunday and Monday. A separate, complementary workshop on legal and technological standards is being organized by The BioBricks Foundation for Monday afternoon and Tuesday that is not part of the 2007 Jamboree. Please visit for more information and consult our detailed schedule.
