The Moore Group
Cell-Free Synthetic Biology
We are a cell-free synthetic group interested in developing solutions to problems within areas such as antimicrobial resistance, drug discovery and agritech. We are interested in cell-free systems, since they provide an engineering platform for high-throughput screening and scaled up synthesis of peptides, proteins and small molecules. We have specific focus on cell-free gene expression (CFE) systems for rapid prototyping of biosynthesis and bioactivity.
