Efflux Pumps provide a direct mechanism to alleviate product toxicity (Image prepared by Everett Kaplan (JBEI))

Welcome to the Mukhopadhyay Group page!!

We are an interdisciplinary team at the Berkeley Lab studying signaling and stress response in both environmental and engineered organisms. We are part of the 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 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.
