Our research interest is biomolecular engineering for applications in health, agriculture, and energy. 

Our research themes include discovery of biological molecules involved in microbe- and host-microbe interactions, elucidating the biosynthesis of bioactive molecules, and leveraging the knowledge to design bio-based systems (living microbes or biomaterials) for diagnostic applications and programming microbe-mediated interactions. 

To advance our research, we use principles in microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, analytical chemistry, protein engineering, metabolic engineering, as well as emerging tools in chemical biology and synthetic biology. More

We are currently accepting graduate students, undergraduate students, postdocs, technicians, and visiting scholars applications. If you are interested, please send your CV to xjzhu@tamu.edu. More
