Systems & Synthetic Biology Laboratory


The Systems and Synthetic Biology Lab conducts research aimed at discovey and redesign of non-model microbes, plants and microbial consortia. We focus on both computational and experimental techniques to overcome the challenges in utilizing these organisms as platforms for producing bio-renewables or answering biological questions regarding metabolism, health and environment. 
  • Professor Saha, along with a group of Nebraska researchers, receives a three-year NSF grant to lead the project to understand how plants produce their own means of defending themselves against pathogens, predators and the environment and hope to use that information to develop more vigorous food crops. Professor Saha is a co-principal investigator on the project on "Dissecting the Sphingolipid Metabolic and Regulatory Network". More on Nebraska Engineering news.
