Welcome to the Plesa Lab

    About the Lab

    Protein Engineering・Gene Synthesis・Biosensing・Synthetic Metagenomics・Antibiotic Resistance・Sequence-Function Relationships・Multiplex Functional Assays・Histidine Kinases

    The Plesa Lab develops new technologies to characterize and engineer biological protein-based systems at large scales and applies these to a number of different research areas and applications. Our work is highly-interdisciplinary and touches on aspects from many fields including biochemistry, synthetic biology, molecular biology, microbiology, structural biology, genetics, bioinformatics, and quantitative biology.
