Re-engineering Protein Signaling Pathways
Proteins are the dominant form of sensor, actuator and decision-making element in the cell, and protein signaling pathways such as phosphorylation cascades or electron transfer chains are intriguing engineering targets. We are interested in understanding how biological organisms process information using protein signaling networks and how such networks can be engineered to program cellular behavior. The focus of our research is the identification of systematic design rules for the de novo construction of biochemical circuits.
