The Peralta-Yahya research group develops and applies principles from chemical and synthetic biology to address challenges in chemical bioproduction and chemical detection. Within the chemical bioproduction space, we specialize in programing metabolism to efficiently convert renewable feedstock into value-added chemicals. Within the chemical detection space, we leverage G protein-coupled receptors, in particular olfactory receptors, for chemical detection and the development of biomedically important circuits.
We are part of the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Georgia Tech. We also accepts students from the BioEngineering Program, the Bioinformatics Program, and the Paper Science & Engineering Program at Georgia Tech.
