Oral #7: Travis Seamons – From Mold to Insulin: Q Circuits in Bacteria

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Tara Deans

Bacteria pervade our daily life. They make food, produce medicines, and influence health. Synthetic biology aims to program organisms for useful applications, but the set of existing tools to do this are limited in bacteria. My project investigates several new genetic tools that can amplify or repress gene expression in bacteria. These work may have improve production of therapeutics such as insulin and enhance current efforts to control bacterial gene expression.
