Expanding Horizons for Complex Traits All the Way to the Geobiosphere's Microbial Genome

Dr. Terry Papoutsakis, noted biomolecular engineer at the University of Delaware, will visit the EBI in Berkeley on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at noon to deliver the next fall seminar on endowing platform organisms with desirable traits utilizing synthetic biology techniques on metagenomic libraries. Lunch will follow in the lobby outside EBB115, where the seminar will take place.
The speaker welcomes individual and group meetings before and after his talk. To arrange a time, go to THIS LINK and calendar your meeting in an available slot.
Dr. Papoutsakis is Eugene DuPont Chair Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Delaware, where he has been since 2007. His research focuses on areas of biology, metabolic engineering, experimental and computational genomics with applications in stem-cell biology and prokaryotic biology for the production of biofuels and chemicals from biomass.
A graduate of the National Technical University of Athens, Dr. Papoutsakis received his master's and doctoral degrees from Purdue University. He won the 2012 James E. Bailey Award from the Society of Biological Engineering/American Institute of Chemical Engineers. He has contributed more than 250 publications, has 15 issued or pending patents, and has co-edited two significant books on biochemical and metabolic engineering.
