Leadership in Metabolic Engineering

Welcome to the Lynch Lab website!

Our lab is focused in the areas of Biochemical and Metabolic Engineering as well as Synthetic Biology. Metabolic and Biochemical Engineering involves the design and optimization of genetic and enzymatic networks to enable a cell to produce a desired compound. These design and optimization efforts can include both computational and experimental methodologies. The ultimate goal of the metabolic engineer is not only to produce valuable products in a cost-effective manner, but also to better understand how genetic and enzymatic networks operate.
