We are happy to announce that Mu-En Chung successfully defended her doctoral thesis.

Her PhD thesis is entitled "Directed evolution of Polymerases and its application in Sequence Saturation Mutagenesis". Besides the development of advanced Sequence Saturation Mutagenesis methods (SeSaM-DV) which employ a new mismatch-tolerant polymerase, Mu-En developed a first-of-its-kind functional cell-surface display of a nucleic acid polymerase and its directed evolution to efficiently incorporate 2’-O-methyl nucleotide triphosphates. Part of her work and her results were published in Biotechnology & Bioengineering under the title “Display of functional nucleic acid polymerase on Escherichia coli surface and its application in directed polymerase evolution”.

Mu-En completed her PhD thesis under the supervision of Prof. Ulrich Schwaneberg. The entire Schwaneberg Group congratulates Mu-En on her success and wishes her all the best for her future.
