This post is written by UW grad student Bryan Bartley Synthetic biology is a fascinating, interdisciplinary field at the intersection of biology and engineering. Synthetic biologists envision that life can be re-programmed by rewriting the genetic code of organisms. A … Continue reading
This post is by University of Texas at Austin grad student Dacia Leon (Twitter: @leondacia) Fluorescence microplate readers are really exciting. These instruments are a staple in any synthetic biology lab given that they allow for high-throughput quantification of microbial growth and fluorescence … Continue reading
This week’s blog post is by University of Washington graduate student Leandra Brettner. All living organisms share a universal programming language—DNA. Long strings of unit molecules A’s, T’s, C’s and G’s dictate the unique traits of each individual, but the … Continue reading
This week’s BEACON Researchers at Work blog post is by University of Washington graduate student Elyse Hope. “Remember to finish your full course of antibiotics” is a phrase we have probably all heard from a doctor at least once. Intuition … Continue reading
This week’s Evolution 101 blog post is by UW graduate student Bryan Bartley. Synthetic biology is a new frontier in biological research where scientists and engineers are creating living systems out of molecular chemistry. In the last half century, the … Continue reading
This week’s BEACON Researchers at Work blog post is by University of Idaho postdoc Martina Ederer. After working on many different projects in a number of different labs, I always seem to come back to the study of evolution. Hence, … Continue reading
This week’s BEACON Researchers at Work post is by University of Washington postdoc Sean Sleight. Synthetic biology is a relatively new field that uses engineering principles to design and build novel biological functions and systems. In 2000, Michael Elowitz and … Continue reading
