Title: Developing an Efficient Tool for Assessing Genetic Circuit Safety and Function

Project Description: 

Genetic engineering, which entails placing foreign DNA into a cell, continues to have enormous potential to address global problems ranging from vaccine development to carbon sequestration. However, when DNA is added to a cell, there are often unintended interactions between the host cell and added DNA. These unintended, and often unrecognized, interactions could not only adversely impact the engineered cells but could also affect the safety of the surrounding environment. Given the lack of current tools to detect these interactions, my research is to develop a tool that allows genetic engineers to uncover these unintended interactions and ensure the efficacy and safety of biologically engineered cells.
