KPIs Board: Team Productivity and Performance Tracking

Academics are often told by critics that they live in a bubble. Cushioned from the harsh realities and fast paced environments of their industrial counterparts. To some, it seems academia works at a slow, inefficient pace and is wrought with bureaucracy. But academics function in a highly competitive culture where financial resources are scarce but [...]

Gordon Research Conference on Synthetic Biology

Last month, we presented our work on modeling the cell cycle using high-throughput yeast genetics at the fourth Gordon Research Conference on Synthetic Biology. The poster presented (below) describes a hybrid approach in which we investigate a small number of genetic interactions (630) with an unprecedented number of biological replicates (up to 20) in [...]

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 for the personnel in these [...]

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. Peccoud became an individual member [...]

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 would not have happened if [...]
