The program known as "iCLEM" is a unique paid summer internship for high school students who trend outside the typical curve of academic enrichment. It is sponsored by JBEI and the Synthetic Biology Engineering Research Center (SynBERC), with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation. Below is a short video showing highlights of iCLEM 2011.
