A bio-based economy has the potential to provide sustainable substitutes for petroleum-based products and new chemical building blocks for advanced materials. We previously engineered Saccharomyces cerevisiae for industrial production of the isoprenoid artemisinic acid for use in antimalarial treatments. Adapting these strains for biosynthesis of other(More)
Aspects of Evolutionary Computation, DNA computing, and in vitro evolution are combined in proposed laboratory procedures. Preliminary experimental results are shown. The traditional test problem for Evolutionary Computation known as the OneMax problem is addressed. The preliminary experimental results indicate successful laboratory separation by tness" of(More)
Genetic algorithms, DNA computing, and in vitro evolution are brieey discussed. Elements of these are combined into laboratory procedures, and preliminary results are shown. The traditional test problem for genetic algorithms called the MAX 1s problem is addressed. Preliminary experimental results indicate successful laboratory separation by tness" of DNA(More)
Isoprenoids are used in many commercial applications and much work has gone into engineering microbial hosts for their production. Isoprenoids are produced either from acetyl-CoA via the mevalonate pathway or from pyruvate and glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate via the 1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate (DXP) pathway. Saccharomyces cerevisiae exclusively utilizes the(More)
The crystal structures of Mg11Rh18B8 and Mg3Rh5B3 have been investigated by using single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Mg11Rh18B8: space group P4/mbm; a=17.9949(7), c=2.9271(1) Å; Z=2. Mg3Rh5B3: space group Pmma; a=8.450(2), b=2.8644(6), c=11.602(2) Å; Z=2. Both crystal structures are characterized by trigonal prismatic coordination of the boron atoms by(More)
Consider the difficulty of designing DNA sequences such as that of the human genome which codes for approximately 100,000 proteins. Even a small protein of 300 amino acids is encoded in a sequence space of 20 300 10 390 : (A " sequence space " being the number of possible sequences of a particular length). It appears that no DNA library can be made large(More)
