International Gene Synthesis Consortium (IGSC)

The International Gene Synthesis Consortium (IGSC) is an industry-led group of gene synthesis companies and organizations formed to design and apply a common protocol to screen both the sequences of synthetic gene orders and the customers who place those orders. In collaboration with national and international government organizations and other interested parties, IGSC also promotes the beneficial application of gene synthesis technology while safeguarding biosecurity. Screening and vetting policies implemented by IGSC members ensure compliance with national and international standards for biosecurity. For more information about IGSC, visit
