Chemical Engineering Seminar

Thursday, February 18, 2016
4:00pm to 5:00pm
Add to Cal
Spalding Laboratory 106 (Hartley Memorial Seminar Room)
Droplet microfluidics for high throughput biology
Adam Abate, Assistant Professor, Bioengineering, University of California, San Francisco,

Many questions at the forefront of biology depend on the individual properties and interactions of millions of single cells.  My lab develops methods for analyzing, sorting, and engineering single cells using droplet-based microfluidics.  I will describe methods in which we are using this to detect rare cells in a population and evolve new cells and enzymes with enhanced properties.  I will also describe how we are extending this approach to synthetic systems to generate artificial antibody-like affinity reagents.
