Professor Banta gave two presentations at CHI's PepTalk - The Protein Science Week in San Diego, CA. The first talk was entitled "Engineering Cofactor Selectivity: Some New Ideas for an Old Problem” in the Biocatalysis and Bio-Based Chemical Production Track. The second talk was entitled "Engineering the beta roll domain for bioseparation applications” in the Protein Purification & Recovery Track.

Professor Banta along with Professor Ronald Koder at the City College of New York have received a new 3-year, $935,000 grant from the NYSERDA Advanced Clean Energy (ACE) Exploratory Research Program. The goal of this proposal is to develop new strains of engineered microorganisms capable of creating high value biochemical products using CO2, water, and renewable electricity.
