We use the tools of synthetic biology, computational biology, and microfluidic devices to advance our understanding of biological systems, especially genetic networks.
Calvin Schmidt George J. Schroepfer, Jr. Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Research in Biochemistry & Cell Biology.
Dr. Bennett was quoted in an interview on synthetic biology entrepreneurship.
Dr. Bennett gave a keynote speech at the Synthetic Biology Future Conference in Cork City, Ireland. The Silicon Republic held an interview with him before the event.
"Engineered temperature compensation in a synthetic genetic clock" was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Rice put out a news release about it here.
David Shis won the George J. Schroepfer, Jr. Award for Outstanding Published Research in Biochemistry & Cell Biology
