BIOMOD website redesign

February 03, 2014

We (Kris, Byron, and Shawn) launched a new (and hopefully improved) BIOMOD website! It now includes photos from the first three years of the competition, as well as a handy countdown timer to see how long is left until the next deadline or event. The design itself is responsive, so it should be more mobile-device friendly.

If you have comments, or notice anything amiss, please send us feedback via the contact form.

BIOMOD 2014 Registration is OPEN

January 21, 2014

Hello BIOMODders!

Ready to sign up? Visit our online form to register between now and April 30th, 2014. Please make sure you have read our how to join and requirements pages.

This year we are implementing a nominal fee ($250) for registration. In recent years, the event, including free lodging for students, has cost roughly $4000 per team. In order to make BIOMOD sustainable, we must begin to recover some of the costs from each team. Moreover, some teams have previously signed up but failed to attend, creating additional administrative burden for us. We hope that that a small fee will also mean fewer cancellations, and more time for us to spend making BIOMOD a success!
