Florian Echelard

Undergraduate Research Intern, Winter 2020

Laval University – Institute of integrative biology and systems

My discovery of SynthBio through the international competiton iGEM motivated me in pursuing this way for my future, I’d like to make as much experience as I can in this research domain. What seduced me in this lab is the aspect of multidisciplinarity that is inside each project, the consideration of inclusion into a wider solution. By working on the optimal design for an expression promoter, I feel like taking first steps in the creation of a whole pathway to make bioproduction accessible and standardized. Identifying which criterias are essential for expression is key to make custom pathways in various frames, such as lipogenic yeasts.
