Expanding the synthetic capabilities of Escherichia coli using synthetic biology

Supervisors: Stephen Wallace, Susan Rosser

Project description:

This project aims to use modern synthetic biology and synthetic chemistry techniques to create new recombinant microbes for use in synthetic biotechnology. In particular, we are interested in engineering E. coli cells to perform reaction sequences that are not found in Nature.[1]
