Our research interests are:
Bioengineering technologies will transform and reshape the future of medicine and agriculture and will revolutionize our ability to understand and engineer genomes. In our laboratory, we develop and apply genome engineering technologies to understand and evolve gene functions and to improve traits of value. We develop technologies for engineering cells to biomanufacture high-value products, including key compounds and select chemicals and pharmaceuticals in different synthetic biologic chassis, including plants, bacteria, and yeast. We translate ideas into products and design and construct novel synthetic gene networks for the overproduction of critical biomolecules.
Researchers at KAUST are developing a test that is rapid, accurate and easy to use in the field—can it help flatten future curves?
A protein hijacked from a bacterial pathogen helps to facilitate more precise genome editing in plants.
