Congrats to Alex Javanpour for showing that OrthoRep works in all common yeast strains tested and getting large payloads onto the orthogonal plasmid. Teaser: this involved developing some slick new techniques and solving a biological mystery.

Check out our new paper about swapping bacterial two-component system DNA-binding domains so that they can be more easily studied and used for synthetic biology. Also the Behind the Paper blogpost Congrats and team!

After 2.5 years of hard work, I'm happy to announce that we have a new preprint! We describe mutations in allosteric TFs through the lens of free energy and allows for quantiative prediction of double mutants w/ broad applications to many allosteric sys.

“We packed a sequencing lab into a sledge, dragged it over 100 km across an ice cap, sequenced microbial communities in the field and completely off-grid, then skied 100 km home with nothing but data”

We discovered small molecule inhibitors that reprogram the activity of insulin-degrading enzyme (IDE).The inhibitors block IDE's insulin-degrading action, but preserve its glucagon-cleavage activity. This approach may be broadly applicable to other targets
