Electrical & Computer Engineering, Paul G. Allen School for Computer Science & Engineering
We are interested in understanding how biological organisms process information using complex biochemical networks and how such networks can be engineered to program cellular behavior. The focus of our research is the identification of systematic design rules for the de novo construction of biological control circuits. Our approach integrates the design of molecular circuitry in the test tube and in the cell with the investigation of existing biological pathways. Engineered circuits are being applied to problems in disease diagnostics and therapy.
