Areas of Collaborative Interest

Today’s most pressing challenges are the result on an unsustainable reliance on synthetic chemistries. Synthetic biology will provide innovative paths to enduring health, food security, and sustainable energy. Traditional methods in biology are inadequate to face the magnitude and urgency of the solutions needed. These challenges call for a cultural revolution that leverages contributions from biology, engineering, manufacturing, and computer sciences to catalyze the emergence of creative solutions.  The Peccoud lab specializes in data management, generating yeast mutants, high throughput phenotyping for model validation, rationally designing and synthesizing optimized vectors, and building large datasets conducive to modeling via high throughput genetics.

I am interested in collaborating in the following areas:

  • Design and production of expression vectors 
  • High throughput yeast genetics 
  • Experimental validation of computational models
  • Cyberbiosecurity 
  • Licensing our technologies
