This August the Peccoud Lab was very pleased to receive an EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory Research (EAGER) award from the National Science Foundation. The funding supports a project the lab is working on with Dr. Indrakshi Ray’s  group at Colorado State University to develop a software designed to ensure the identity and fidelity of plasmids and other synthetic DNA molecules used in life science research.

We are grateful for NSF’s commitment to funding exploratory work in its early stages through EAGER grants and we are looking forward to the exciting research to be done on this project over the next year.
