Congratulations to Taylor, who received an honorable mention / runner up amongst a very competitive field of poster presenters at this past weekend’s EBRC retreat, hosted right here at Northwestern by the Center for Synthetic Biology!
Synthetic biology: Sensing with modular receptors
Matthew Brenner, Jang Hwan Cho and Wilson W Wong
Sensing and responding to diverse extracellular signals is a crucial aspect of cellular decision-making that is currently lacking in the synthetic biology toolkit. The development of modular receptor platforms allows for the rewiring of cellular input-output relationships.
