The whole lab went up to be a part of the first Gordon Conference on Synthetic Biology: (Re-)constructing and Re-programming Life. Certain to be an historic event, it was a great opportunity to network with the leaders in the field and share some of what is going on in the lab. […]
Melissa’s paper has been published in Nucleic Acids Research! A modular strategy for engineering orthogonal chimeric RNA transcription regulators outlines our new approach to creating basic RNA transcriptional regulators that can be used to build genetic networks. The background of the approach can be found here, where we showed how RNA-based transcription attenuators […]
