NU Models: Breaking Down Walls!

NU Models seeks to expand promoter and ribosome binding site characterization of E. coli to other non-model organisms chosen for their promise in other fields of research. All processes take place in a cell-free system to provide a consistent characterization platform. This information is useful in synthetic biology applications for healthcare, the environment, and industry as it provides a basis for DNA design in organisms other than E. coli that are more optimized for the needs of a given application.
