Latest Update: April 2010


Research in the Ellis Lab focuses on advancing biotechnology through the use of synthetic biology. Projects fall into one of two categories or belong in both:

  • 1. Foundational Synthetic Biology

Developing the tools for rapid, predictable engineering of biological devices and systems.

Examples: biopart design, assembly techniques and device synthesis, part and device characterisation, standardisation, chassis systems, mathematical models, design simulations

  • 2. Applied Synthetic Biology

Using the synthetic biology approach in biotechnology applications .

Examples: combinatorial synthesis of pathways, modular design of biosensors
