Welcome to Vnat Community

Vibrio natriegens is among the fastest-growing known organisms and a promising new platform for synthetic biology and biotechnology. First isolated in 1958, it's been the subject of >60 publications since its genome was sequenced in 2013. Its fast reproduction, high-flux metabolism and macromolecular synthesis capacity, and natural competence are attracting interest for a wide range of goals. Vnat Community is a place to share and discuss goals, experiences and results related to Vibrio natriegens with a particular emphasis on synthetic biology and the fundamental research that supports it.

This site is currently open only to invited members. If you're doing research at the undergraduate level or above in any discipline and are interested in using or learning about Vnat, contact Ben Thuronyi at bwt2@williams.edu with your name and affiliation for an invitation to the forum.
