KEVIN MEHR

Kevin Mehr
PhD Program
Previous Degree: B.Sc. Chemical Biology

2009 Cohort

Developing high-throughput screens for various applications including identification and study of carbohydrate-active enzymes, as well as the directed evolution of enzymes for synthetic applications. Technologies utilized include fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), robotic colony picking, high-throughput plate assays, and in vitro compartmentalization. Currently I am working to develop these screens for environmental organisms to ‘mine’ enzymes of interest for study and further development (Functional Metagenomics).
