iGEM and Registry server upgrade Wednesday afternoon (Boston time).
iGEM Headquarters is upgrading our server on Wednesday afternoon August 24th between 5:00PM and 7:00PM Boston time. During that period, the iGEM and Registry web sites may become totally unavailable or may be available only for reading. Please let us know if there are problems after this upgrade, we have tested the new service and expect few problems. The new server should provide better performance under load (at wiki freeze) and has more disk capacity. -- Randy

community & communication

Forum domain list

Announcing the iGEM forum system & the new iGEM videos series!

iGEM HQ has put a lot of work into creating custom forum software that will enable the iGEM community to ask questions, keep in touch, share ideas, and more. The system is a combined comment/forum system so you can comment on any page and your comments will be linked directly to the forum, or you could just post topics in the forum. Either way you use it, check it out and let us know what you think. For more information, see the Forum Help page.

iGEM Video TV

Wondering where to test out this new forum system? Leave a comment on a video on the new iGEM videos page. In order to communicate out more iGEM HQ has made, and will continue to make, a series of videos -- informational, instructional, at-the-bench, and others. There is even a collection of community videos. Want to learn something new? Share your team's video? Learn about iGEM? See the Videos page.

Note that both the iGEM forum system and the iGEM videos page can be reached from both 2011.igem.org and igem.org.

apply for visas now!

time to apply

In previous iGEM Jamborees, there were several teams that were not able to attend due to visa problems. In order to avoid a similar problem this year, we are asking that all teams apply for visas by June 30 at the latest. If you plan to attend a Regional Jamboree and require a visa, apply as soon as possible! The wait time for visas is typically 3 months, but it can be longer.

Details on how to apply can be found here.
