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.
