Dr. Daniel Gibson

"BUILDING THE SYNTHETIC CELL"

Monday, February 27, 2012 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Presented as part of the OSU Zoology Department lecture series: Our Grasp of Nature. 

Dr Gibson is an Associate Professor at the J. Craig Venter Institute

For years, the genomes of many organisms have been sequenced and deposited in databases.  It is now possible to synthesize bacterial cells starting from digitized information.  Starting from digitized genome sequence, we designed, synthesized, and assembled the Mycoplasma mycoides JCVI-syn1.0 genome and transplanted it into a Mycoplasma capricolum recipient cell to create new M.mycoides cells controlled only by the synthetic chromosome.
