Yanxia Hou-Broutin won the 2nd Price at EARTO INNOVATION AWARDS CEREMONY held in Brussels on 16 October 2018
Impact Delivered Category 2nd Price for the first Universal Optoelectronic Nose developed by CEA/INAC and spinoff Aryballe Technologies For this category, the rewarded innovations (product or services) have social and/or economic relevance, innovative originality, are today on the market and have proven their impact. There has long been a strong demand to digitise humans’ sense of smell, as has been achieved for our sense of hearing with the microphone and our sense of sight with cameras. While there has been some progress in creating ‘electronic noses’ capable of identifying small numbers of similar liquids or gases, universal odour detection technology remained an aspiration.

GPU-accelerated BigDFT
Developed by the L_Sim group in the MEM laboratory, BigDFT is a density functional theory (DFT) massively parallel electronic structure code using a wavelet basis set with the capability to use a linear scaling method. Using Graphics Processing Units (GPU) can boost considerably BigDFT. The article 'Accurate, Large-Scale and Affordable Hybrid-PBE0 Calculations with GPU-Accelerated Supercomputers' (see https://arxiv.org/pdf/1712.07973.pdf) shows some capabilities of GPU-accelerated BigDFT. In order to simplify the BigDFT installation, we provide a Docker container for BigDFT in collaboration with the NVIDIA company.

Médaille d'or au concours iGEM pour Noreen et Cassandra
Deux étudiantes de Master 1 du CREAB, Noreen Louis et Cassandra Vivier-Baudry, ont obtenu une Médaille d'Or au Concours iGEM de Biologie Synthétique du MIT à Boston. L'équipe était composée de 10 étudiants issus de diverses formations (ingénierie biomédicale, infectiologie, biotechnologie) et s'est rassemblée autour d’un seul et même projet: SnapLab, le kit portable de détection du choléra. L'objectif du projet était de developer un dispositif qui permettra, à partir d’un échantillon de selle, de déterminer si la personne est infectée ou non par le choléra. Les résultats des analyses seront collectés à plus grande échelle, afin de cartographier la maladie dans certaines zones géographiques.
