Check out our latest work led by @kraj593 and @naveen_v_ . We compared 2-stage and 1-stage processes for chemical production in E. coli and found interesting features of E.coli's metabolism that will help design production strains.

CRISPR is awesome, but if you stably co-express many sgRNAs, what could you do? You could: regulate many genes, edit many SNPs, redirect metabolism, & build cool circuits. Now introducing ELSAs to co-express 22 sgRNAs without introducing repetitive DNA.
