If DNA is a language, let’s learn to write it well.

– Jean Peccoud

The Peccoud Lab specializes in rationally designing and testing genetic constructs in high throughput. We employ a state-of-the-art data management infrastructure in order to develop and test models of complex gene networks.

New synthetic biology journal

Why a new synthetic biology journal? Most synthetic biology papers are not published in a synthetic biology journal. They are still published in non-specialized journals that span a broad spectrum of scientific specialties from bioinformatics to [...]

Noisy foresight

Twenty years ago, I was just a boy with a crazy dream of building stochastic models of the noise affecting the expression of genes in living cells. Back in the 90s this idea sounded like [...]
