In early October 2012, 49 project teams—including one from Grenoble—took part in the European round of the International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) competition. While the Grenoble team did not make the cut of 18 for the final round to be held in Cambridge, MA, USA, the team did win a gold medal and the Safety Commendation for their project (called SEnsiColi) to build an ultra-sensitive pathogen detector from engineered bacteria that form part of an advanced detection-amplification-communication system. The Safety Commendation award recognizes the Grenoble team’s idea to create a database of biobrick safety sheets that can be used by all competition participants and expanded with each coming year.
