Research Interests and Accomplishments

Daniel Gibson is an Associate Professor in the Synthetic Biology group at the JCVI. Since joining the JCVI as a postdoc in 2004, Gibson led the JCVI efforts to synthesize two complete bacterial genomes. Those projects resulted in creation of the first synthetic bacterial cell and development of an enabling suite of DNA synthesis and assembly methods.

Prior to joining the JCVI, Gibson earned his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from the University of Southern California. While there, he used yeast as the model system for studying cell cycle surveillance mechanisms (checkpoints), which are significant in our understanding of cancer development. Before earning his Ph.D., he earned his Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences from the State University of New York at Buffalo.
