iGEM in the Economist

Tue Apr 30, 2019 9:51 pm

The Economist journalist, Oliver Morton, attended the iGEM 2018 Giant Jamboree. His subsequent piece titled, 'The engineering of living organisms could soon start changing everything' came out in the Economist this spring. I thought that this article was interesting because it exposed iGEM to a wider audience, and it is written from an outside perspective. So, it when reading the article it takes me back to the first time I every attended Jamboree, and it feels just as inspiring and overwhelming as it did the first time. Also it gives me a chance to easily explain to my parents who are accountants, what iGEM is about, so that was cool! :D ... everything
