Welcome to the Boyle Laboratory!
The Boyle Laboratory combines systems biology, synthetic biology and computational models to advance our knowledge of metabolic processes in living organisms and engineer them to manufacture products of interest.
Here is the link to our publication describing our use of isotope assisted metabolic flux analysis to identify bottlenecks in the production of limonene for jet fuel in cyanobacteria.
It is finally out! We have been working hard on developing a transient growth model of Chlamydomonas in diurnal light and it is now available in mSystems. Big shout out to Alex for the excellent work and for helping me come up with the clever title: Rhythm of the Night (and Day). I think we have a new lab theme Continue Reading
Since Prof. Boyle was on sabbatical during the Spring semester, we had a delayed celebration for the lab upon her return. We headed to TopGolf today to celebrate our two newest Doctors: Alex Metcalf and Cara Sake, welcome our newest students (Sami Siska, Jacob Tamburro and Sandra Gomez), and the end of the semester.
Three new students joined the Boyle lab today! Samantha Siska is a chemical engineering Ph.D. student from the University of New Mexico. She will continue our work on quantifying platelet metabolism. Sandra Gomez and Jacob Tamburro are quantitative bioscience and bioengineering Ph.D. students. Sandra received her bachelors degree from John Hopkins University in bioengineering and will be working on alternative Continue Reading
