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
