What is Biogenesis?
Biogenesis is an International Biomedicine Olympiad that will have its second edition in 2023. It is online and 100% free. An excellent opportunity to challenge yourself globally and test your knowledge in different areas of biomedicine. Last year, we received thousands of entries from 67 countries.
Who can participate?
Anyone! 9th to 12th grade students must participate in the Standard Category and anyone else can join the Open Category.
How it works?
In Biogenesis, you can compete in up to 3 different exams:
1- Anatomy and Physiology
2- Cellular and Molecular Biology
3- Pharmacology and Toxicology
Each of the exams will have 2 phases and 15 multiple choice questions per phase. The participants with the best scores in the second phase will be awarded certificates of honorable mention, bronze, silver or gold. It is possible to earn more than one certificate if the participant obtains sufficient scores in more than one exam (eg.: gold in Anatomy and Physiology and bronze in Pharmacology and Toxicology). In addition, everyone will receive certificates of participation, regardless of the score obtained.
