Team 2024 has begun its journey!

Team ABOA 2024 is multidisciplinary team comprising of students from University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University with some special guests from Tampere University. The project requires team members from many different fields of study even though the emphasis remains on research within synthetic biology. In a short while we will know what this year's project will be about. Stay tuned! 

Meanwhile, to support this year's team, do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to collaborate with You! 

Nordic iGEM Conference

We will arrange the Nordic iGEM Conference 2024 in Turku. Join our NiC team to organize the best international science conference this summer. We are looking for collaborators, speakers and most of all great conference hosts!


ABOA is a team of students from Turku, competing in the annual biggest international synthetic biology competition, iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine). The objective of iGEM is to solve a current problem by inventing and carrying out a research project that utilizes synthetic biology. All students from the University of Turku, Åbo Akademi and Turku University of Applied sciences can join ABOA and all majors even outside the biosciences are appreciated and needed. The first ABOA team competed in 2019 and the tradition has been continued with teams in 2021, 2022, 2023 and now, in 2024.
