The COVID-19 testing laboratory, housed in Princeton’s Department of Molecular Biology, is part of the University’s comprehensive testing program. The testing lab is an integral part of the University’s overall health and safety measures.
Shan He, Martin Jonikas, and colleagues have discovered how Rubisco holoenzymes assemble to form the algal pyrenoid, an organelle that mediates the incorporation of carbon dioxide into sugars. The study was published July 23, 2020 in the journal Nature Plants.
The news site recognized Myhrvold's interest in Cas13 and his plan to continue developing CRISPR-based technologies at Princeton.
Researchers have discovered that assembly of the algal pyrenoid, a structure that mediates the incorporation of carbon dioxide into sugars, is guided by the presence of a particular protein sequence, or motif. The study appears November 11, 2020 in the open-access journal Science Advances.
State-of-the-art imaging technologies are used in research programs across the Department of Molecular Biology and beyond. See how principal investigators Jared Toettcher, Danelle Devenport, Nieng Yan and Department Chair Bonnie Bassler are using these core-facility imaging resources to advance knowledge.
MOL Postdoc Matt Johnson and graduate student Cora Betsinger were honored at the department retreat for their excellence in teaching.
Nicole Aiello and Brian Mahon were recognized with the Postdoc Service Award at the 2020 MOL retreat for outstanding dedication to the Postdoc program in the Department of Molecular Biology.
Lena Basta, a Molecular Biology graduate student in the Devenport Lab, was awarded the Thomas J. Silhavy Graduate Advocacy Prize for 2020 at the annual departmental retreat. The Award is for the student who has shown outstanding dedication and service to the Graduate Program in Molecular Biology.
