We are the Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology Lab in the Dept. of Biological Sciences at KAIST.
Our research interest lies broadly within microbiology as it applies to a variety of important areas, including human health, food production, and industrial biotechnology. We seek to understand the genetic and microbial factors driving various microbiome processes and transform microorganisms into living sensors, therapeutics, and factories.
Towards this end, we develop engineering design principles for diverse microbes and microbial communities. We utilize a diverse set of tools including high-throughput DNA synthesis and sequencing, multiplex phenotyping, systems and synthetic biology, animal models, and bioinformatics.
