Synthetic Biology Training Paper

Government personnel responsible for the security of life sciences infrastructures are often not formally trained in biological sciences and relevant scientific fields. Although the security sector works together with the scientific community, the rapid pace of life sciences innovations, evolving terminologies, and shifts in research culture makes it challenging [...]

EBRC Membership

In the fall of 2018, the lab attended a retreat hosted by the Engineering Biology Research Consortium (EBRC) at Colorado State University and have been interested in the work of the EBRC since. We are very glad to announce the Peccoud Lab officially became involved with the consortium when Dr. [...]

Welcome Krista and Brooke

The Peccoud Lab welcomes two undergrads to our team.  Krista is an incoming freshman who will be dual majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering.  Brooke is a senior in the same majors.  Both students were the first to go through our newest method of standardized training, centered around [...]

Biohacked Insulin, Still Making Waves

Remember when computers took up entire rooms and were exclusive to big companies and the government? Now we carry them in our pockets. But what changed between the days of Space Odyssey and selfies isn’t just technology. It’s access. The software boom that defined the 90s and early 00s [...]

Informatics Demo Day Presentation

Each year Colorado State University hosts CSU Demo Day, a showcase celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship within the University. This year our lab manager and research associate, Aubrey Ibele, was one of the 106 chosen presenters for the showcase. Below is her research poster and the script of her presentation [...]

Thank You & Congratulations to Sarah

Sarah Condio joined the Peccoud Lab in August 2018. She played a major role in helping the lab complete the massive tasks of transitioning to a new LIMS system. Also, Sarah helped digitize and optimize all laboratory protocols. Her amazing, get-it-done attitude, attention to detail, ability to communicate, problem solve, and [...]

Cyberbiosecurity in the news

Biology is becoming increasingly digitized. We rely on computers to operate laboratory equipment, design genetic constructs, and store, share, and analyze genetic data. Cyberbiosecurity is a new field of science that explores novel risks at the interface of biology and computer science. The Peccoud lab is investigating cyberbiosecurity in a [...]
