OUR MISSION

The mission of the DAMP lab is to develop novel biological systems using formal representations of protocols and experiments for the specify-design-build-test cycle.  This will allow for faster, more scalable, and reproducible research results that can be transitioned from academia to society.

WHAT WE DO

The DAMP lab uses its expertise to deliver consistent, reproducible, and high-throughput results that can be shared among researchers. These characteristics are vital to address synthetic biology-related research efforts where time, cost, scalability, and result quality are of utmost importance.

 

We automate over 28 molecular biology protocols, including DNA assembly, PCR, DNA/RNA purification, cloning (transformation, plating, colony picking, DNA quantification), preparation of libraries for next-generation sequencing, gene reporter assays, flow cytometry sample preparation, among others.
