Summary Sentence: "GPCR-based Sensors for the Evolution of Chemical-producing Microbes" - Pamela Peralta-Yayha, Ph.D. - Georgia Tech

Full Summary: The Petit Institute Breakfast Club seminar series was started with the spirit of the Institute's interdisciplinary mission in mind and started to feature local Petit Institute faculty member's research in a seminar format. Faculty are often asked to speak at other universities and conferences, but rarely present at their home institution, this seminar series is an attempt to close that gap. The Petit Institute Breakfast Club is open to anyone in the bio-community.

"GPCR-based Sensors for the Evolution of Chemical-producing Microbes"

Pamela Peralta-Yayha, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor
School of Chemistry & Biochemistry
Georgia Tech

Pamela Peralta-Yahya’s research group is developing foundational technologies to more effectively engineer biological systems for chemical synthesis. One area of research is the development of biosensors to screen chemical-producing microbes, which could identify strains that produce chemicals at industrially relevant yield. This technology has potential applications in the area of microbial synthesis of pharmaceuticals & microbial production of high energy density fuels.
