Daniel brings expertise in microbial genetics and genome engineering, biochemistry, and cell biology to Primordial Genetics. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University’s Department of Cell Biology where he studied the regulation of lipid metabolism by kinase signaling cascades in the budding yeast S. cerevisiae. He conducted post-doctoral research at the Daniel K. Inouye Center for Microbial Oceanography Research and Education at the University of Hawaii where he was involved in the metagenomic and metatranscriptomic analysis of marine microbial community metabolism with a focus on the diversity and function of microbial photoactivated proteins.
