Dr. Haynes and Research Technician David Nyer have been invited to give a talk and a poster at the 2016 Synthetic Biology: Engineering, Evolution & Design (SEED) conference in Chicago, IL July 18-21, 2016.
Congratulations to Haynes lab PhD student Daniel Vargas, who has been invited to give a poster presentation at the Third Mammalian Synthetic Biology Workshop (MSBW3.0) at MIT in Boston, MA May 21-21, 2016. He will present the group’s latest work on investigating the dynamics of epigenetic regulation in human cells. Daniel is a second-year graduate student in the Biological Design program. Special thanks to the Western Alliance to Expand Student Opportunities (WAESO) for supporting his travel expenses.
A new educational resource for the growing field of synthetic biology, the “Synthetic Biology Handbook,” has just been released. The chapter on mammalian synthetic biology was co-authored by Dr. Karmella Haynes, SBHSE PhD student Rene Daer, lead editor Darren Nesbeth, Desmond Schofield, Alexander Templar, and Yanika Borg.
Several Haynes lab members will present their latest research at the 2016 Synberc Spring Retreat at UC Berkeley March 22-25.
Dr. Karmella Haynes’ article discussing Chan et al.’s recent work on genetic containment of genetically modified organisms has been published in Nature Chemical Biology, part of the Nature Publishing Group. Read the rest of this entry »
