Genetic Memory

The immediate goal of our research is to enable the engineering of genetically encoded memory systems. Modest amounts of programmable memory, if implemented within living cells, would have a profound impact on the study and treatment of many diseases, and would broadly enable many non-medical applications of biotechnology. We are interested in both the basic and applied aspects of the problem, from considering how to best store information inside cells to practical applications.

Synthetic Biology

Our overall long term goal is to help make biology easy to engineer, an area of research known as synthetic biology.
