The Jaschke Lab bridges the fields of Synthetic Biology, Microbiology, Virology, and Systems Biology to address fundamental problems of:
(1) how do we discover all the components necessary to make a functional genome?
(2) how do we reconfigure these components to make engineered genetic systems more reliable, more predictable, and more useful?
(3) how do we engineer biology to benefit human health and reduce impacts on our environment?
We aim to answer important questions by pioneering the science and engineering of synthetic genomes by designing, building, testing, and learning from our designs.
