The students from the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Berhmpur secured Gold Medal for their project named “FRaPPe” (FRET based Ranker for Proteins and Peptides) designed to create a new tool to target dengue fever.

The FRaPPe can eventually turn into a drug screening module to provide a therapeutic intervention strategy for not just dengue but also several other viral infections.

Accordingly, with the project idea, the team had successfully registered in the competition of iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) foundation and in the Finale, called “iGEM's Giant Jamboree” held in virtual platform with over 6,000 participants from 249 teams from 36 countries participating in it, the team of IISER, Brahmapur grabbed the Gold.

The team conveyed their heartiest wishes to the Prof KVR Chary (Director, IISER) and to all staff, faculty and students of IISER fraternity. It was a 9 month- long journey with the project that was guided by Dr R Selvi Bharathavikru and Dr Sandeep Chatterjee (Assistant Professors of IISER, Berhampur).
