Evolving Enzymes and Testing Darwin's Theory With Ann Gauger

play_button.gif Click here to listen.

On this episode of ID the Future, Casey Luskin interviews biologist Ann Gauger, who discusses her new research paper with Doug Axe, recently published in BIO-Complexity. Listen in as Dr. Gauger shares how she tested the changes necessary to evolve enzymes by a Darwinian mechanism, and stay tuned as she shares the results on our next podcast.

Ann Gauger is a senior research scientist at the Biologic Institute. Her work uses molecular genetics and genomic engineering to study the origin, organization and operation of metabolic pathways. She received a BS in biology from MIT, and a PhD in developmental biology from the University of Washington, where she studied cell adhesion molecules involved in Drosophila embryogenesis. As a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard she cloned and characterized the Drosophila kinesin light chain. Her research has been published in Nature, Development, and the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
