We are an interdisciplinary team at the [http://www.lbl.gov/ Berkeley Lab] studying signaling and stress response in both environmental and engineered organisms. We are part of the [http://enigma.lbl.gov/ ENIGMA] project where our research includes the study of two component signaling in the model sulfate reducing bacterium ''Desulfovibrio vulgaris'' Hildenborough. As part of the [http://jbei.org/index.html Joint BioEnergy Institute] we adopt targeted and systems biology approaches to elucidate causes of inhibition during fuel/ solvent production from lignocellulose using the host microbes such as ''Escherichia coli'' and ''Saccharomyces cerevisiae''. We hope to engineer better hosts for metabolite production and develop tools that are universally useful for microbial cellular engineering. Recently we have also become interested in studying signaling and response in cyanobacteria that dominate desert soil crusts.

We also study rainfall events and signaling in the fabulous cyanobacteria that dominate the desert soil crusts on our planet.
