Science Fair
October 12-14th, 2017

Created in 1992, the Science Fair is a French national event of scientific popularization. 2017’s topic was “How can we change the preconceived ideas in science ?”. We had the chance to have our own stand to present the iGEM competition as well as our project SnapLab. Our main aim was to popularize synthetic biology and the field in which it is applied.

NRJ Interview
September 26th, 2017

Our team was contacted by Cyril, a journalist working for the world class radio “NRJ”. On September the 26th, our team was welcomed at NRJ’s studio.

“UGA C’est Party”, a new tradition
September 14th, 2017

This is the new tradition of our university: once a year in September, all students are welcome to the central place of the campus. Many different animations, associations and activities are proposed to the students for free. For the very first time, iGEM Grenoble-Alpes was represented during this event.

Because we detected fluorescence!
July 25th, 2017

Before being able to detect fluorescence that bacteria are going to emit, we have to make sure our system is capable of detecting fluorescence! And, that’s what we did! First time we detected fluorescence, we are on the right direction but still lots of work to achieve!

“Apéritif dinatoire”
July 20st, 2017

What a better way to thank everyone that supported us so far than organizing an “Apéritif Dinatoire” as we would say in French.

Photoshoot session
July 13rd, 2017

Such a beautiful day for a photoshoot session! So as to present ourselves on our website, we had this idea to take photos in a street art environment. Grenoble hosts each year the Street Art festival, giving us the opportunity to discover amazing piece of arts as well as artists. In the depths of Grenoble’s streets, fun we had!

First success with electronics
June 16th, 2017

After struggling with electronics vibes for a while, we were first able to make our electronic circuit work. A first step in making our temperature control system to work…

Motion design, animation serving communication
June 5th, 2017

Motion design is a graphic art design consisting of creating animated objects delivering a message in a fun way. It has to be dynamic, fast, creative and attractive. In this spirit, we realised a short motion design movie for our crowdfunding campaign.

Thinking, thinking and solving the DNA Extraction

Kit’s issues
June 4th, 2017

In laboratory, DNA is usually extracted by the means of different types of kit. The most famous are the « Mini preps » kits and they use a centrifuge. But, to respect our portability criterion we had to find a way to extract DNA without a centrifuge! How ? That is the question.

“La Casemate” Fab Lab, our place to

“make almost everything”
May 6th, 2017

FabLabs are collaborative workspaces that welcome people from any age or field to help them carry out their projects. They are an alternative to mass-production, giving people access to computer-controlled tools that are usually restricted to industrial uses such as 3D printer, laser cutter or vinyl cutter. Fab Labs have thus embodied the “Do It Yourself” approach, encouraging the use of free and open source software.

Popular Scientific Lectures
27th April, 2017

One of the demands of the iGEM contest, which we have at heart, is to make science accessible to everyone by the popularization of science. To this end, a popular scientific conference was organized. On this “Café Science” evening, we received 3 speakers from 3 different scientific fields.

3D printing, a promising technique
April 7th, 2017

In the recent years, 3D-printing has become a fast and simple way to implement any kinds of ideas. As this technology is compatible with many different domains, such as food industry, pharmaceutical field, biotechnology, 3D-printing has a fast unlimited growing potential. As a matter of fact, in cell therapy, new innovative treatments have been brought by 3D printing, like the creation of blood vessels from stem cells.

Genetically Modified Music
November 3rd, 2016

We decided to organize a concert as our very first outreach event. EVE was the most appropriate place in Grenoble because this place was built for students. By making it affordable to everyone, this cultural event was an undeniable success. Everyone had fun and were positively surprised by the variety of music genres, from Jazz to Death Metal. We would like to thank each group that participated in this concert.

We are a team now !
October 25th, 2017

After a teacher mentioned iGEM in two different classes, iGEM Grenoble team started. A few simple words raised a strong motivation! Weeks later, a meeting was organized between teachers of the School of Pharmacy (who first wanted to start a new team); teachers of Phelma Engineering School (who supervised the previous iGEM teams in 2012 and 2013) ; and 3 students in Biotechnology who expressed their interests in the project.
