BIOMOD is a bio-molecular design competition that provides undergraduates an opportunity to systematically engineer the self-assembly of biological macromolecules into complex nanoscale machines for scientific and technological purposes.
Students form teams in the early spring, and then spend the summer to design, build, and analyze their systems. All teams converge in the fall to present their work at the Jamboree.
BIOMOD was founded at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. Without the generous and continual financial and organizational support by the Wyss Institute, BIOMOD would not have been possible.
