I work in the Constraints Lab at INRIA in Paris about combinatorial promoter modeling. INRIA is the French National Institut for Informatics & Automatics. I learned about OpenWetWare from the iGEM competition, and I've joined because I'm a former student of the 2007 Paris Team for the iGEM competition Actually now i'm the president of the SYNBIOSYS club for systems & synthetic biology. I'm also the leader of the Paris team for iGEM 2008. I like the OWW open science platform and i definitely would like to contribute to this philosophy that is the real object of science : sharing.
