========================================================================================================

The Tang Lab characterizes environmental microorganisms via 13C-metabolic flux analysis and multi-scale modeling of cellular processes.

We also engineer microbial metabolisms for feedstock utilization and chemical production. Our research focuses on:

1. New pathways or metabolic topologies in nonmodel species.

2. Genome to phenome mapping (including channeling)

3. Carbon/energy balancing under genetic or environmental stresses.

4. Artificial intelligence to improve metabolic model predictions.  

5. Engineering nonmodel species (Yeast and cyanobacteria).

 

 

 

About PI: I was born in Shanghai and grew up in a small village in Jiangxi. I did my high school in Ningbo (Xiao Shi High School). I finished my BS and MS degrees at Tianjin University (advisor: Xue-Ming Zhao). I received my PhD in Chemical Engineering (advisor: Barbara Krieger-Brockett) at the University of Washington (2004). I did my postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley (Advisor: Jay Keasling). I worked at Washington University since 2008. My lab has graduated seven PhD students (including one African American, two female students).
