The Peralta-Yahya research group is part of the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
We develop technologies to more rapidly and effectively engineer biological systems for chemical synthesis. To do this we use concepts and techniques from protein engineering, metabolic engineering, synthetic biology, and synthetic chemistry.
Our work focuses on two research areas: the development of GPCR-based chemical sensors, and the microbial production of alkaloids, fuels and commodity chemicals.
