Julius is quoted in The Scientist magazine


The latest publication from the Voigt lab, published today in Nature Chemical Biology, describes the use of an elaborate optogenetic circuit in E. coli to create spatially and temporally resolved pattens of gene expression that respond to light. In this particular instance, expression of red, green or blue fluorescence proteins is triggered by exposure to red, green or blue light respectively. The work on “disco bacteria” is nicely summarized in this article by The Scientist magazine, which features some thoughts from our very own Julius Lucks!
