Huimin Zhao visited the Synthetic Biology course. Huimin shared his amazing work creating an automated robotics pipeline for building and testing DNA constructs called iBioFAB and how this pipeline is both massively increasing throughput and reducing costs! (For those of you interested in biological foundries Huimin and other scientists across the globe have formed a biofoundries alliance). Huimin also talked about his work in engineering Streptomyces for the discovery of natural products through a variety of strategies including strain engineering and bottom-up pathway refactoring. Also first time visit for Huimin to the course!!!
