Our research is focused on Metabolic Engineering - the improvement of cellular properties, using modern genetic tools. This field encompasses two important components: a) the modification of biochemical pathways inside cells and b) the rigorous evaluation of the resulting cellular phenotypes.

Our most recent research has been focussed on the following topics:
               <ul>

<li><b><a href="Biochemicals.shtml">Metabolic Engineering of <i>E.Coli</i>

               for.</b></a> the production of biochemicals.

<li><b><a href="Inverse.shtml">Inverse Metabolic Engineering</b></a>

<li><b><a href="gTME.shtml">gTME</b></a>

               <li><b><a href="Flux.shtml">Flux Determination</b></a>

<li><b><a href="Hepatocyte.shtml">Hepatocyte Physiology</b></a>

<li><b><a href="Metabolomics.shtml">Metabolomics</b></a>

<li><b><a href="SysBio.shtml">Systems Biology</b></a>

               </ul>
               
           	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:

               <ul>
               <p>
               <li>
               <b><a href="Bioinfo.shtml">Bioinformatics and Systems Biology</a></b> - 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.

               <li>

<b><a href="Fluxes.shtml">Methods for intracellular flux determination</a></b>

               - Fluxes are determined by material balancing, NMR fine spectra analysis and

GC-MS measurements.

               <li>
               <b><a href="Microarray.shtml">DNA microarrays</a></b> - We have developed full 

genome microarrays for <i>Synechocystis</i> Sp., and partial microarrays for

               <i>C. glutamicum</i>, <i>E. coli</i>, and the mouse genomes.
