The Community Science and Innovation conference. First summer edition happening on the 1st of July! Just One Giant Summit brings together leading actors using community approaches to science and innovation. Join us to explore the latest trends, share good practices and address common roadblocks.
Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is the resistance of microbes such as bacteria to our antibiotics. It is an emerging phenomenon across the globe, and not well tracked. This online and local community is creating challenges, grants and programmes to counteract this phenomenon and track it in Africa.
Cancer is a complex disease, but by leveraging technology, interconnectivity, and Big Data, we can take on the enormous task of supporting research and beating it. Join Epidemium as we explore new paths to cancer research with data, a community, and an open science-oriented approach.
In this space, you can learn about some of the projects happening within iGEM Community, formerly After iGEM, under different topics around synthetic biology.
Powered by a global community of 4000+ volunteers and experts, OpenCovid19 develops open-source and low-cost tools and methodologies that are safe and easy to use in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Synbio Brazil are a network of enthusiasts, dreamers, scientists, entrepreneurs and leaders who believe in the potential of Brazilian synthetic biology to transform the world.
Where is the "GNU Public License" or "Linux"" of biotech? Friendzymes plans to make it cheaper, faster, and easier for people to do bioengineering by openly designing important enzyme constructs.
The 'Do-It-Together SARS CoV-2 Detective' project has developed a strategy inspired by techniques used for the ‘GMO Detective’ method, in order to detect the virus causing Covid-19, Corona Detective. The final product, strips of tubes (or 96 well plates) with dry reagents, could be readily supplied anywhere, without cold-chain dependence; and monitoring tests could be run by ordinary people, without any background in medicine or biology, just some ability to follow simple instructions and common sense.
A novel design for a reusable N95 respirator that's comfortable, fits everyone, reduces waste, and can be made with an alternative supply chain.
A Covid-19 diagnostic that is based on colorimetric readout isothermal amplification and can go from sample collection to result in one hour using just a heat source and a pipettor.
Community-Powered Science and Innovation
There is no monopoly on great ideas, so nor should there be one on the tools and resources needed to execute them.
The countless challenges our world faces today are too critical for us to rely solely on traditional research models. All of us can contribute to the solutions; we just need the access to do so.
That's why we made JOGL:
To create an egalitarian space for science and innovation.
To create a healthier, safer, and fairer world.
To mobilize our communities for change.
Ready to accept the call to action? Join JOGL today to begin contributing and collaborating for change.
HOW JOGL WORKS
Whether experienced or amateur, student or professional, on JOGL, everyone is given equal access to a community of eager changemakers and a world of shared knowledge and skills.

Biohackers team up online to help develop coronavirus solutions
"The ultimate goal of the JOGL challenge was...to develop an open source (publicly shared) methodology to safely test for the virus using tools as common as possible"
The Rogue Experimenters
Community labs want to make everything from insulin to prostheses. Will traditional scientists accept their efforts?
iGEM meets Just One Giant Lab on the road to a sustainable future
"JOGL and iGEM share core values and a common vision to nurture a safe space for open collaboration, pooled resources, shared information and public documentation, in which to develop science-based projects, responsibly and ethically, for a sustainable future"
