Systematic genetic code reprogramming
Group Leader page

We are developing approaches for systematically reprogramming the genetic code of cells and organisms. These approaches involve engineering the translational machinery of cells and the genome with the goal of rewriting the genetic code for unnatural polymer synthesis.
