Toward biohacked medicines: the Open Insulin case

By |2019-04-17T21:39:25+00:00September 13th, 2018|

Today we published two papers discussing the development of biohacked medicines spearheaded by the DIYBio movement. This revolution could dramatically change the way patients access life-saving drugs. In an opinion entitled "The Open Insulin Project: A Case Study for Biohacked Medicines", in collaboration with Warren Kaplan (Boston University), we make the argument that emerging innovation ecosystems challenge [...]

Sustainability of bioinformatics infrastructures

By |2019-02-06T19:38:31+00:00September 29th, 2015|

GenomeWeb published a long article about the sustainability of bioinformatics infrastructures based on the GenoCAD transition into a commercial product. The articles describes the challenges of finding the right business model allowing the scientific community who depends on the tools to access it without restriction while at the same time generating enough revenue to ensure [...]

Synthetic Biology: Patent or not Patent?

By |2019-02-06T19:38:53+00:00October 6th, 2014|

Synthetic biology has emerged at the interface between life sciences and engineering. This has a resulted in a cultural divide regarding the status of intellectual property. Engineers have been advocating an open source model that has been spectacularly successful in computer science. Life scientists and specifically biotechnology companies have been defending the patenting of DNA [...]

GenoSIGHT paper is published in PLoS ONE

By |2019-02-06T19:38:53+00:00September 18th, 2014|

After several years of incubation and internal validation, we are pleased to announce the publication of an article describing GenoSIGHT, an adaptive cytometry system, developed with a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF Award#0963988).  GenoSIGHT is an "intelligent" system capable of adapting the image acquisition process to the dynamics of the cells under observation. [...]
