Tutorial Video Abstract
Current DNA synthesis and assembly technologies give today’s genetic engineers unprecedented freedom to control every aspect of genetic design. In this webinar on DNA assembly, you will learn:
- Key concepts in DNA assembly
- The importance of analyzing combinatorial libraries of genetic designs for natural product biosynthesis
- Emerging areas of research
Join Dr. Michael Smanski as he discusses his group’s work in engineering natural products, specialized metabolites that are not necessary for growth or reproduction of the organism(s) that produce them. By focusing on how combinatorial DNA assembly strategies can be used to interrogate and optimize refactored gene clusters, Dr. Smanski aims to frame an example application of DNA assembly for the production of a natural product with promising pre-clinical bioactivity.
