About

Synthetic Biology is an emerging field that employs engineering principles for constructing genetic systems. The approach is based on the use of well characterised and reusable components, and numerical models for the design of biological circuits. Our lab has constructed tools for controlling gene misexpression and marking specific cells in growing plants. We are building genetic circuits that incorporate intercellular communication, and could be used to generate self-organised behaviour at the cellular scale - Marchantia polymorpha provides a simple system for reprogramming plant morphogenesis and metabolism.
