Synthetic gene expression control systems in microorganisms

SangWoo Seo is an Associate Professor in the School of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Seoul National University, South Korea. He earned a B.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from POSTECH in 2007 and 2012 for developing synthetic biology tools in E. coli. He was a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Bioengineering at UCSD, where he applied multi-omics analyses to reconstruct transcriptional regulatory networks in E. coli. At SNU, his research group focuses on i) elucidation of complex regulatory networks in microorganisms by using next-generation sequencing based multi-omics analyses, ii) development of novel synthetic biology tools, and iii) redesigning microorganisms for the production of chemicals, fuels, food additives, pharmaceuticals, and therapeutics, for environmental bioremediation, and for biomedical applications. Several microorganisms such as E. coli (including Nissle 1917), Vibrio natriegens, Corynebacterium glutamicum, Methanotrophs, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yarrowia lipolytica, and Pichia pastoris are used as host systems.
