Constructing Enzyme Cascade Reactions toward Bioactive and Commodity Compounds

(Research Description PDF)

A More Complete Research Description (click here)

We use interdisciplinary methods to evaluate enzyme catalysts from various sources, such as bacteria, plants, and yeast, with non-natural substrates. Our vision is to transform natural compounds or synthetically-derived chemicals into novel products. Transfer of the genes encoding native or bioengineered enzymes into a chassis organism can potentially make various bioactive or commodity molecules in vivo or in vitro.
