George McArthur IV

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
- Einstein



I am a Scientist at Arzeda Corp., where I develop novel metabolism in industrial bacteria and fungi. Please visit my webpage for more information about my current and past work in synthetic biology, metabolic engineering and related biotechnology.
