NCSU Scientists Can ‘Tweak’ 30 Genes at a Time in Boost for Bio, Chemical Manufacturing

Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed and demonstrated a new technique for controlling directed evolution in bacteria. The technique can be used to better engineer microorganisms for use in biopharmaceutical and chemical manufacturing.

“Our technique allows users to modify 10 times more genes than previous techniques,” says Nathan Crook, corresponding author of a paper on the work and an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at NC State.
