Engineering Microbial Metabolism for Production of Anti-Malarial Drugs
Jay D. Keasling, the Hubbard Howe Jr. Distinguished Professor of Biochemical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, discusses the causes and consequences of malaria and how scientists have successfully engineered the metabolism of a micro-organism to produce an anti-malarial drug.
The talk is is the first of three lectures by Keasling in Boston College's 2009 University Lectures in Chemistry series.
