Current Research

At JBEI, I am working on improving tolerance of host strains to biofuel to improve both growth in the presence of and production of the biofuel candidate isopentenol.
For more details on this work, see: DOI:10.1128/mBio.01932-14.

In my second project, I am using FACS to discover genetic changes in a large library of strains that impact expression of membrane protein.
