MGB/Microbial Physiology and Genetics: Protein Export

The current aim of this laboratory is to understand the molecular mechanisms of protein secretion and export across membranes in bacteria. The major approach is to combine genetic manipulation and biochemical studies in an in vitro protein translocation system developed earlier in this laboratory.

Schematic representations of the… more »

Yeast Genetics/ Cellular Responses

Research in the laboratory is centred around mechanisms that underpin cellular response(s) to changes in the environment.  The research has two quite distinct components: the one uses Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a model eukaryotic system to evaluate the cellular response to heavy metal exposure, such as Copper, Chromium (VI) and Cadmium. The… more »
