Biotechnology Leadership Seminar - Phil Romero

Wednesday, March 30, 2016
4:00pm to 5:00pm
Add to Cal
Noyes 147 (J. Holmes Sturdivant Lecture Hall)
Data-driven protein engineering
Phil Romero, Assistant Professor, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, UCLA,

The Romero Lab studies the design principles of proteins and how they can be applied to engineer new molecular functions. We believe technological advances in both computational and experimental methods will drive our understanding of the relationships between protein sequence, structure, and function. Therefore, a large part of our work focuses on developing new methods to probe these relationships on an unprecedented scale. These methods leverage advances in DNA sequencing/ synthesis, microfluidic screening, molecular modeling, machine learning, and optimization. 

This is the inaugural seminar hosted by Caltech's new Biotechnology Leadership Predoctoral Training Program. We invite you to visit our website to learn more about the program.
