About the Webinar

Protein engineering is the design of new enzymes or proteins with desired functions. The DNA sequence used to encode a polypeptide can have dramatic effects on its expression. Due to advances in recombinant DNA technology, synthetic biology, and high-throughput screening techniques, protein engineering methods and applications are becoming increasingly important and widespread. A variety of protein engineering applications have emerged ranging from agriculture, environmental, medical, and nanobiotechnology applications.

In this webinar, we will discuss

  • how these new synthetic DNA tools are being applied
  • how they circumvent the constraints of previous approaches.
  • highlight some of the promising results emerging from the developing field of protein engineering.

Sumit Kumar earned his MS degree in Biomedical Engineering from Drexel University, where he was first exposed to functional genomics while working with long-oligonucleotide gene-specific microarrays. He continued his education at Drexel University for his Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology, characterizing several nucleic acid binding proteins in Malaria parasite. Currently, he is working as a Senior Product Manager at GENEWIZ, focusing on synthetic biology and next generation sequencing services.
