Srivatsan Raman

Assistant Professor
University of Wisconsin-Madison

Vatsan Raman is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and and an Affiliate Professor in the Department of Bacteriology, and a member of the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Before joining the UW, he was a Wyss Technology Development Fellow at the Wyss Institute and Dr. George Church’s laboratory at the Harvard Medical School. He worked on developing directed evolution methods for designing new proteins and engineering microbial biosynthetic pathways. In his graduate work, he developed computational methods in the Rosetta biomolecular modeling software suite for predicting protein structures at atomic-level accuracy, in the laboratory of Dr. David Baker at the University of Washington, Seattle.


Our laboratory takes a systems and synthetic biology approach to understanding and designing biology at multiple scales – proteins, microbial pathways and microbiota. We leverage computational protein design (Rosetta), next-generation genomics technologies and high-throughput phenotyping to address these questions.
