Research Interests

Anderson Lab develops new applications and tools for the Synthetic Biology community. Our goal is to create a computationally-driven platform for the design of genetic organisms that minimizes the uncertainties and errors of such projects. Our platform is built around a computational method for encapsulating the function of biomolecules based on precise chemical models. Our platform aggregates data from various sources, then develops synthesis and verification tools to automatically design engineered organisms with new functions, demonstrated with bacterium that produces acetaminophen.
