Research

Our research is focused on Metabolic Engineering - the improvement of cellular properties, using modern genetic tools. This field encompasses two important components:

  1. The modification of biochemical pathways inside cells, and
  2. The rigorous evaluation of the resulting cellular phenotypes.


Our most recent research has been focused on the following topics:


To accomplish the above goals we make use of a diverse array of scientific tools and methods, many of which have also become areas of research for our group:

  • Bioinformatics and Systems Biology - Our group was one of the first to realize the importance of computational tools for handling the large volume of data generated by microarrays and other technologies.
  • DNA microarrays - We have developed full genome microarrays for Synechocystis Sp., and partial microarrays for C. glutamicum, E. coli, and the mouse genomes.
