synthetic biology, and a background in one or more of molecular, micro or synthetic biology; physics; or chemistry
Vibrio natriegens is a new genomic powerhouse for synthetic biology and directed evolution. However, it currently lacks the most useful tool for gene characterization for any organism: a whole genome knockout collection: a collection of single-gene knockout mutants for every non-essential in an organism’s genome. We will use Knockout Sudoku, a new technology developed by our team for making knockout collections at ultra-low-cost and high speed, to build a knockout collection for V. natriegens to learn how to fully leverage its potential.
