Engineered Genetic Systems for Rapid Evolution, Chemical Biology, and Synthetic Biology

ENGINEERED GENETIC SYSTEMS FOR RAPID EVOLUTION, CHEMICAL BIOLOGY, AND SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY

NOW HIRING FOR TWO POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS
NOW HIRING FOR A PROJECT SCIENTIST IN SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY AND YEAST GENETICS
NOW HIRING FOR A TECHNICIAN IN MOLECULAR AND CELL BIOLOGY

We engineer specialized genetic systems that go beyond what nature’s genetic systems can do. We are especially interested in synthesizing living cells that dramatically accelerate the speed of evolution, that reinterpret the genetic code, and that can record transient information. We apply these cells to the discovery of useful biomolecules, biopolymers, and therapeutics; the study of molecular evolution; gene therapy; and the creation of synthetic life. Our research spans the fields of genetic engineering, synthetic biology, chemical biology, xenobiology, and directed evolution.
