<font face="trebuchet ms" style="color:#000000">The Ellis Lab is actively involved in advancing foundational synthetic biology and applying synthetic biology to a variety of different research areas. Our research is interdisciplinary, with members coming from biology, chemistry, maths and engineering backgrounds. The laboratory is part of [http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/syntheticbiology CSynBI, The Centre for Synthetic Biology and Innovation] and [http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/bioengineering The Department of Bioengineering] at [http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/ Imperial College, London]. The major focuses of the lab are studying the construction of regulatory networks and understanding how to build a designer genome from parts.
