Biosensors for guiding engineering of macrolide biosynthesis

We are thrilled to share our latest work in developing biosensors for guiding macrolide biosynthesis! This is the product of an ongoing collaboration with Ashton Cropp’s group at VCU and was led by Williams Lab graduate student, Yiwei Li. This novel biosensor will allow us to search for and evolve novel enzymes for macrolide diversification. Dr. Li is now an associate biostatistician at PPD.

Dr. Lexie Malico

Huge kudos to Lexie Malico who passed her final Ph.D. defense! Dr. Malico will begin work soon at BASF as part of their professional development program. Ph.D. #13 for the group! We wish her all the best in her future endeavors!
