We are a young lab that designs and engineers functional proteins. We are focused on the development of computational and experimental tools as well astwo major areas for the application of these methods: (1) the microbial-mediated conversion of biomass to fuels and chemicals that more closely approximate petroleum-derived feedstocks; and (2) development of antibody and antibody-like molecules for use as protein therapeutics against viral pathogens.
