First-ever spider glue genes sequenced, paving way to next biomaterials breakthrough

17.6.2019: UMBC postdoctoral fellow Sarah Stellwagen and co-author Rebecca Renberg at the Army Research Lab have published the first-ever complete sequences of two genes that allow spiders to produce glue – a sticky, modified version of spider silk that keeps a spider's prey stuck in its web. The innovative method they employed could pave the way for others to sequence more silk and glue genes, which are challenging to sequence because of their length and repetitive structure.
