I hold a Violette and Samuel Glasstone Independent Research Fellow in the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Oxford. My research is focussed on developing and applying synthetic biology approaches to the Euglenozoa, a monophylletic group including both free living algae and parasitic eukaryotes. I am taking a multidisciplinary approach to establish metabolic capacity and utility of different species in this group. This includes developing transformation protocols, characterising metabolic capacity and applying high-throughput sequencing approaches for novel pathway discovery. These disparate approaches are used to facilitate targeted engineering of complex metabolic pathways for the production of compounds for industrial, biotechnology and medicinal applications.

Thanks for your comments – the timing sounds a particularly interesting use. I can imagine expressing a set of enzymes later in a pathway before allowing the first steps, to make sure there is no build up of intermediates.
