Empower Science.

Help young ambitious scientists to think out of the box while doing great research!

iGEM@home is a software, designed by the iGEM Team Heidelberg to divide extensive computing task into many small packages and to distribute them to many computers. Volunteers who offer their computing power to the participants of the iGEM competition will receive these packages to have them calculated when their computers are idle.

iGEM is an international student competition in Synthetic Biology. This is a fairly new field of biology aiming to implement artificial functions into organisms turning them into biological machines. Each year student teams from all over the world are challenged to develop new ideas for projects as diverse as using bacteria to degrade waste, produce electricity or detect dangerous chemicals.

The design of organisms with new functions requires substantial modelling exceeding the computing power of individual computers by far. With the support of volunteers, the platform iGEM@home may help iGEM Teams to realize computing tasks that arise during their projects and enable them to conduct novel approaches in Synthetic Biology.

If you want to join the network and empower science, just click on the download button. More information can be found on our project overview or in our video about iGEM, our project and of course iGEM@home.

The software comes along with a screensaver that displays interesting facts and information on Science, Synthetic Biology and iGEM. You can find a preview here.

No idea if it works properly yet as I joined through bamstats and the URL that has been supplied is wrong, similarly the URL on the home page is wrong. Once I get home will take a look at connecting to a correct URL, or the project may sort it out themselves. We will see.
