Today the Devarenne Lab had a paper published in PLoS ONE that describes our efforts using peptide microarrays to identify phosphorylation substrates for Adi3. The study is part of former graduate student Incheol Yeo‘s thesis studies.
Party for Incheol
On Saturday, March 7, 2020 the Devarenne Lab had a party at Tim’s house to celebrate the successful defense of Incheol. Lots of food and good drinks were had
Incheol Yeo Defends Thesis
On March 2, 2020 Devarenne Lab graduate student Incheol Yeo successfully defended his PhD thesis. Incheol’s studies focused on the regulation of Threonine Deaminase 2 during the resistance response of tomato to bacterial pathogens.
New Paper Published from Collaboration with David Stern Group at BTI
Today the Devarenne Lab had a new paper published in Algal Research. The paper is a collaboration with the lab of David Stern at the Boyce Thompson Institute and it describes our efforts to express the B. braunii race B hydrocarbon biosynthesis genes in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
Ivette Presents Poster at Annual A.I. Scott Symposium
On September 28-28, 2019 Devarenne Lab Postdoctoral Researcher Ivette presented a poster on her work on the LOS enzyme at the A.I. Scott Symposium for Biological Chemistry. The symposium is held annually by the Texas A&M University Department of Chemistry.
Ivette Presents Poster at First Texas Chemical Biology Conference
On May 24, 2019 Ivette attended the very first Texas Chemical Biology Conference, which was held on the Texas A&M Campus at the campus hotel and conference center. Ivette’s poster was about her project for a directed evolution analysis on the LOS enzyme from the L race of B. braunii.
Shruthi Joins the lab for the 2019 summer
On June 5, 2019 Shruthi Garla joined the lab as a summer intern. She is a local high school student and will be working on B. braunii hydrocarbon production.
Devon Joins the Lab as Graduate Student
In February, 2019 Devon Boland joined the Devarenne Lab as a new graduate student. Devon is from Illinois and will be working on identifying the reductase genes from the L race of B. braunii needed for production of lycopadiene.
Ivette Joins the Lab as Postdoctoral Researcher
Ivette Cornejo Corona has rejoined the Devarenne Lab as a Postdoctoral Researcher. Her time in the lab is supported by a postdoctoral fellowship from the Méxican science agency CONACYT. She will be working on the reaction mechanism of the B. braunii L race LOS enzyme. Ivette was a previous member of the lab as a visiting graduate student. Welcome back to the lab Ivette.
