November 12, 2011 – Berkeley Bioengineering Associate Professor Seung-Wuk Lee has turned a benign virus into an engineering tool for assembling structures that mimic collagen, one of the most important structural proteins in nature. The process developed in his lab could eventually be used to manufacture materials with tunable optical, biomedical and mechanical properties.
Synthetic Biology Delivers Cool Tools but New Therapeutics Are a Ways Off October 17, 2011 – What does it take to transform a microbe normally found in the intestinal tract into a cancer-killing machine? These and other questions about the applicability of synthetic biology abound…. SBI’s J. Christopher Anderson, assistant professor of bioengineering at Berkeley, is […]
