The iGEM 2013 team from Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma—which competed in the synthetic biology category of MIT’s iGEM competition—didn’t make it past the European qualifications in Lyon in October. But the four students didn’t go home empty handed: they won a gold medal for their project as well as the best mathematical model award.
The project is now being furthered by Master’s students in nanobiology and nanophysics at Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma and Grenoble University’s Joseph Fourier School, as part of their lab training courses at LMGP. The goal is to develop electrochemical methods to characterize the activity of the KillerRed protein.
