    Engineering of microbes can allow for the sustainable production of a variety of useful chemical compounds upon which we rely in our everyday lives. The many advantages of metabolic engineering include the use of renewable ...
  • Moberg, Emily Alison (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Marine populations are increasingly subjected to changing conditions whether through harvest or through broad-scale habitat change. Historically, few models have accounted for such trends over time, and even fewer have ...
  • Wright, Laurel D (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Mobile genetic elements facilitate movement of genes, including those conferring antibiotic resistance and other traits, between bacteria. Integrative and conjugative elements (ICEs), also known as conjugative transposons, ...
