NEB supplies reagents, free of charge, to participants in both iGEM
. Teams must already be registered before requesting reagents from NEB.
Genes in Space®
Genes in Space Competition
is a national competition in which students from grades 7 through 12 are asked to design experiments that help to address challenges faced during space travel. In 2016, as a part of this program, the first successful PCR experiment was conducted in space using NEB reagents. NEB is a major sponsor of this annual program.
