Yeast Synthetic Biology

Hasty Lab

Jan. 2019 - Present

My master's project work has mainly been focused on engineering and characterizing different small-molecule inducible promoter systems in budding yeast. 

this page should be unpublished dont worry about it.

Heavy Metal E. Coli Biosensors

Hasty Lab

Mar. 2018 - Jan. 2019

I worked under Dr. Philip Bittihn to learn molecular cloning techniques in order to develop sensor strains of E. coli that would detect low levels of heavy metals.

I had my first hands-on experience with molecular biology and academic research in general. From Dr. Bittihn, I learned and practiced basic techniques in molecular cloning to create synthetic constructs for this project.
