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.
The College of Sciences made a short video explaining how we ThinkAndDo in our research group at NC State, check it out!
