Protein Design for Answering Biological Questions

Centre for Programmable Biological Matter

Bentham Lab

AI-driven protein design tools stand to revolutionise biotechnology and the way we analyse and understand biological systems. In the Bentham lab, we utilise computational protein design and experimental structural biology to guide the bioengineering of staple crops with enhanced resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses. Our research aims to increase global food security while minimising the impact on the environment, creating the foundation for a new generation of sustainable agriculture.
