Welcome to the Bioinformatics & Metabolic Engineering Laboratory at M.I.T. Our research - led by Professor
Greg Stephanopoulos of the Chemical Engineering Department - concentrates on a
few diverse challenges in the fields of Metabolic Engineering and Bioinformatics*.
*Metabolic Engineering: The rational redesign - typically using genetic engineering - of organisms to meet commercial objectives, by
the modification of existing - or the introduction of entirely new - metabolic pathways.
*Bio.in.for.mat.ics: (bI-O-"in-f&r-'ma-tiks) The collection, classification, storage, and analysis of
biochemical and biological information using computers, especially as applied in molecular genetics and genomics.
Currently, there are a few open positions in our group. If you are interested in becoming a researcher
in our laboratory, please read about the opportunities that are available immediately, or
