<html> <align=left><h1 style="color:maroon">Research</h1></align> </html> Our research is focused on Metabolic Engineering - the improvement of cellular properties, using modern genetic tools. This field encompasses two important components:
  • the modification of biochemical pathways inside cells and
  • the rigorous evaluation of the resulting cellular phenotypes.

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

<html> <br> 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. <li> <b><a href="BioReactor.shtml">Bioreaction network analysis.</a></b> <br> </html> <html> <tr><td><br></td></tr> <!---Blank Line----> <div style="position: relative; width: 750px; height: 20px; overflow: hidden"> <div style="position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px; z-index: 2"> <img src="/images/6/69/Ban_2_dsm.gif" alt="" width="750" height="20" longdesc="/wiki/Image:Ban_2_dsm.gif"/> </a></div> </div> <!---Maroon bar---> </html>
