ABE France is led by the Department of Biology at L'Ecole Normale Supérieure.
As part of the adaptation and implementation of the ABE program in France, professors of biology and biotechnology will attend ABE trainings in DNA manipulation and protein purification experiments at the ENS. They will then borrow the materials and reagents to train the students in their high schools. Through the ABE program, students will use modern biotechnology techniques and tools through genuine experiments, carried out daily in laboratories. They will understand their nature and potentialities, but also, they will discover the pleasure of manipulating, understand that these up-to-date techniques are accessible, and hopefully they may eventually pursue careers in the sciences.
