Multiple Designer Organelles for Expanded Eukaryotic life

Project description

Expanding eukaryotic life with novel organelles

Protein design and engineering have the potential to create new proteins and bioinspired materials for various biotechnological applications. To advance these synthetic biological processes, scientists of the EU-funded MultiOrganelleDesign project propose to develop novel organelles capable of driving transcription and translation using an expanded genetic code. The scientists have created membraneless organelles inside eukaryotic cells in which the genetic code can be expanded to open a new path to residue-specific protein engineering. Eukaryotes will then be able to code for more than the normal complement of amino acids.
