11/2017 There have been some unexpected changes to the OpenWetWare platform, affecting the formatting of the Banta Lab Website. We are currently working on addressing these issues. A new website is under development and should be launched soon.

10/2017 The Banta Lab is pleased to welcome another new graduate student into the lab group. Nadim Massad has joined the research group this semester.

9/2017 A paper entitled “Block V RTX domain of adenylate cyclase from Bordetella pertussis: A conformationally dynamic scaffold for protein engineering applications” by Bulutoglu and Banta was published in Toxins as an Invited Review for the Special Issue: Adenylate Cyclase (CyaA) Toxin

9/2017 A paper entitled “Catch and release: Engineered allosterically-regulated β-roll peptides enable on/off biomolecular recognition” by Bulutoglu, Dooley, Szilvay, Blenner and Banta was published in ACS Synthetic Biology.

9/2017 A paper entitled “Block V RTX domain of adenylate cyclase from Bordetella pertussis: A conformationally dynamic scaffold for protein engineering applications” by Bulutoglu and Banta was published in Toxins as an Invited Review for the Special Issue: Adenylate Cyclase (CyaA) Toxin.

9/2017 Congratulations to Yuta Inaba for passing his qualifying exam!

8/2017 Harun Ozbakir successfully defended his PhD thesis, the fifteenth from the Banta group. His thesis was entitled "Engineering Electron Transfer Processes in Oxidoreductases: Applications in Biocatalysis". Congratulations Dr. Ozbakir!

8/2017 Professor Banta and Professor Jin Montclare of NYU co-organized a 2 day Symposium consisting of 4 sessions entitled "Recombinant Type Materials" at the 254th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Washington, DC. Professor Banta gave a presentation at the Symposium entitled “Engineering the Calcium-Regulated β-Roll Peptide for Biomaterials Applications”.
