Photo-synthetic bacteria set up in fermenter suite

Sung-Hye H. Grieco

I work in the Centre for Blood Research at University of British Columbia. I learned about OpenWetWare after I attended Pacific Rim Summit on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy meeting at Vancouver in 2008 September and listened the inspiring plenary lecture by Dr. Endy Drew about Synthetic Biology titled "Can we make Biology Easy to Engineer?", and I've joined because I wanted to share protocols and ideas about sciences and discuss about daily questions for myself and others.. After I joined it, I also realized that I can use this OpenWetWare for live website for communicating with fermenter users for on-going project using OpenWetWare LabNotebook.

Research interests

  1. Small-scale fermentation optimization and process development:
    Provide time and cost efficient production tools using fermentation equipment.
  2. Building up fermentation data base:
    Provide on-line database from fermentation conducted from our suite with detailed fermentation conditions for result download, invoices, tracking down previous data, and data comparison and easy analysis.
  3. Sharing scientific information for trouble shooting and protocal exchanges:
    Also provide information about basic materials (media composition, characteristics of host strains), instructions on how to prepare bioreactors, conducting fermentation, and analysis of fermentation data and off-line data.
