<!--Jeremy Housekeeper here, the two images with the transition effect are mine. I am going to play around with resizing them so all 3 will fall into a single line for a better aesthetic. The colors and font of the hover text will also be adjusted to be more in line with the rest of the wiki. It's still broken on IE, works on Firefox. WebKit, Opera support coming soon.-->

Overview:

Biological systems must often be painstakingly tuned before they will efficiently produce drugs or biofuels, degrade chemicals, or perform other useful tasks. Our team implemented broadly applicable methods to optimize biological systems through directed evolution, light-regulated gene expression, and computer aided protein design. We characterized light-inducible protein expression systems for multichromatic tuning of biological pathways. To provide an inexpensive method for tuning gene expression with light, we developed a tablet application that is freely available. We also used computer-aided design to develop proteins that more effectively bind isotypes of the flu protein Hemagglutinin. Finally, we implemented a continuous culture device (turbidostat) in order to apply directed evolution to the metabolism of ethylene glycol in E. coli. We have termed the research conducted this year “Apptogenetics” as all projects utilize purpose-built computational applications for biological research.
