About Laura R. Jarboe

My research area is metabolic engineering, with a focus on understanding inhibition of biocatalyst growth and metabolism, such as that mediated by the desired product, substrate or a growth media contaminant. The goal of understanding the mechanism of the inhibition is subsequent rational engineering of the biocatalyst for increased tolerance. The tools used in my lab include transcriptome analysis, phenotype analysis and directed evolution and reverse engineering of tolerant strains. Bioinformatics and computational biology are especially relevant to the analysis of transcriptome data and in the interpretation of genome sequence data for evolved mutants.
