The Deiters group has been awarded an NSF grant funded by the Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems. The grant "Near-natural Amino Acid Mutagenesis for the Engineering and Study of Protein Function" will support research on the design, synthesis, and genetic encoding of new unnatural amino acids to be used as molecular probes. This research is being conducted in collaboration with the Cropp lab at VCU.
