System & Synthetic Biology

Our system and synthetic biologists study how the thousands of molecules in cells coordinate to create life, as well as how to re-engineer living systems. They illuminate basic biological processes and create and find key biomolecules and drugs in a laboratory setting. This work has led to insight into the strong conservation of molecular machines in diverse plants and animals, as well as improved diagnostics and therapeutics.
