Webinars » Metabolic pathway engineering using High-Throughput DNA Library Assembly
he objective of metabolic engineering is to turn an organism to become a cell factory for biotechnological purposes, such as the production of value-added compound, through modifying the endogenous metabolic network. By using biological data and engineering principles, DNA assembly enable the researcher to design and build novel biological system or optimize natural systems for useful purposes in several areas.
Field Application Scientist, GenScript
Dr. Edward Wong is a field application scientist in GenScript. He completed his PhD degree from University of Adelaide. He worked as a Post Doctoral fellow at National Cancer Centre Singapore for 3 years and he had successfully reported the predictive factors for genetic screening of BRCA1 and BRCA2. He also reported the importance of genetic testing for 25 breast cancer-predisposition genes using NGS technology. Both of his works were reported in PlosOne and npj Genomic Medicine.
