    About This Project

    We are engineering a bacteriophage system that naturally assembles DNA ministrings - a safe & effective gene therapy vector to encode any gene(s) for any therapeutic targeted application. Bacteriophage Expression and Assembled Ministrings (BEAM) vectors combine the proven superior safety and efficacy of DNA ministrings with the efficiency and simplicity of phage production. If successful, it is poised to become the new gold standard vector for gene therapy design and production.
