We use the tools of synthetic biology, computational biology, and microfluidic devices to advance our understanding of biological systems, especially genetic networks.
Calvin Schmidt and Timothy Hallacy presented posters at the 2013 Rice Undergraduate Research Symposium.
Ars Technica wrote an article about David's paper, as did Rice University.
"A library of synthetic transcriptional AND gates built with split T7 RNA polymerase mutants" was accepted for publication in PNAS.
"Stable Maintenance of Multiple Plasmids in E. coli Using a Single Selective Marker" was published in ACS Synthetic Biology. Dr. Bennett was interviewed about it for their podcast .
