Cheryl Kerfeld video interview: A cell with no lipids: what are the odds? [LINK] Cheryl Kerfeld video interview: A cell with no lipids: what are the odds? [LINK] September 3, 2020

Cheryl Kerfeld was recently interviewed by the journal BioTechniques. In the video, she discusses bacterial microcompartments and her work on the Proteo Cell Project, an effort to create the first cell without any lipids present.

Modifying a bacterial microcompartment shell proteins to bind metal ions for electron transfer with electrodes Modifying a bacterial microcompartment shell proteins to bind metal ions for electron transfer with electrodes January 28, 2020

The Kerfeld lab has engineered a bacterial shell protein to incorporate copper for electron transfer activity. Harnessing natural biological processes to synthesize new materials is key for developing future functional bioreactors and biomaterials.
