Congratulations to the iGEM team at Imperial College who managed to win the Grand Prize at this years iGEM competition for their “ecolibrium” project that we recently featured on our website. @imperialigem wins the Grand Prize at #iGEM2016 #GiantJamboree! Congratulations! You guys are some real STARs! https://t.co/4i9ayYM3Nh — The Lucks […]
Kyle, Eric, and Angela’s paper “Cotranscriptional Folding of a Riboswitch at Nucleotide Resolution” is online in Nature Structural and Molecular Biology and a featured news story through Northwestern. With the development of cotranscriptional SHAPE-seq, this paper marks a milestone in RNA biology as the first strategy for the measurement of nascent RNA […]
In the weeks before officially moving to the Chicagoland area, the Lucks Lab attended the 2016 SEED (Synthetic Biology: Engineering, Evolution & Design) conference, held in the historic Hilton Chicago. As part of receiving the ACS Synthetic Biology Young Investigator Award, Julius presented a research seminar on the groups latest […]
Congratulations to the Imperial College London 2016 iGEM team for using Small Transcription Activating RNAs (STARs) regulators in their project – ecolibrium! Their project looks at developing a framework and new tools for engineering co-cultures of bacteria. We’re honored that they choose to use STARs and the power of RNA […]
Eric and Julius recently attended the 18th Annual Rustbelt RNA Meeting in Cleveland. Eric had the opportunity to present a short talk on his latest work on SHAPE-Seq technology and was later presented with the award for best talk! Congratulations Eric!
The entire Lucks Lab for RNA Engineering has recently moved to Northwestern University! The lab joins the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering in the McCormick School of Engineering and joins Danielle Tullman Ercek’s group as the newest members of Northwestern’s Center for Synthetic Biology, which aims to program biological […]
The Lucks Lab for RNA Engineering is excited to announce that Khalid K. Alam has joined the lab as the newest postdoctoral fellow! Khalid recently completed his PhD work on aptamer evolution and engineering from the Burke Lab at the University of Missouri, and supplements the Lucks Lab’s expertise […]
