Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Metabolic Modeling and Analytical Biochemistry of a Lipid Over-accumulating Mutant of Chlamydomonas

The Umen, Allen and Evans laboratories at Donald Danforth Plant Science Center are jointly recruiting an enthusiastic Post-Doctoral scientist to work as part of a team on an NSF funded project to investigate how algal cells partition carbon into growth related biosynthetic pathways versus storage reserves such as starch and oil. Prior work by these … Continued


We recently released ~17,000 additional mutants. Together with mutants released before, the total number of mutants available is now ~37,000, covering 73% of the Chlamydomonas genome! A manuscript describing the pilot collection is here(link is external). Most of the mutants available (specifically, mutants labeled LMJ.RY0402.******) are from a second generation library, not described in this … Continued
