Interdisciplinary MolES team programs yeast cells to say "˜Hello'! Filed Under: NewsResearch UW researchers have produced cell-to-cell communication in baker's yeast, a first step in building multicellular organisms from scratch. The red yeast cells produce a plant hormone, which "tells" the green cells to express a gene differently. An interdisciplinary team from bioengineering and electrical engineering, led by MolES faculty Eric Klavins, were recently featured for their work in synthetic biology. Read more at UW Today.
