Babhru’s second story from the lab was published in eLife! Check it out here.
A US patent issued to the lab
A US patent issued to the lab U.S. Patent Application No. 15/355,824ACTIVATING MITOTIC CHECKPOINT CONTROL MECHANISMS“This patent describes a method of controlling the duration of cell division by conditionally dimerizing designed fragments of two highly conserved, mitotic proteins. The method, which we call the ‘eSAC’ (ectopic Spindle Assembly Checkpoint) activator, will be useful as a synthetic biology component. We also plan to use it to study the adaptation…
New paper in JCB!
New paper in JCB! Congrats to Babhru for his paper in the Journal of Cell Biology!
Welcome to the lab!
It has been a busy two months in the lab, with some people moving on and new people joining! We have two new faces in the lab: Juan Orozco and Sean McGuire. Juan is a junior in the MCDB program. He has joined the lab to gain experience in working at the bench. Sean is a MSU graduate with a good amount of experience in…
Ajit is back!
Ajit is back in the lab! Ajit is back from his 6-month long sabbatical in the Baker lab at the University of Washington. The lab is still here! Ajit spent six months learning the basics of de novo protein design using the Rosetta suite in the Baker lab, and has come back to UM with many exciting ideas and projects.
Rebekah Ronan joins the lab as the lab manager/technician.
