• Study of T7 RNA polymerase-DNA interactions by way of unnatural base pairs 

      Vial, Brian (2010-05)
      The use of the T7 RNA polymerase is ubiquitous in molecular biology as a research tool for the study of the regulation and mechanism of transcription in biological systems. Previous research has demonstrated its high ...
    • Synthetic transcription systems 

      Davidson, Eric Alan (2010-05)
      In this work, we seek to expand synthetic in vitro biological systems by using water-in-oil emulsions to provide an environment conducive to directed evolution. We approach this primarily by utilizing a model transcription ...
