Natural Product Biosynthesis and Microbial Engineering

This group is sequencing the genomes of fungal species with the aim of identifying, biochemically characterizing, and finding heterologous expression of natural products in a specific biosynthetic gene cluster. In addition, they use MSI resources for protein-structure studies involving specific enzymes in these biosynthetic pathways, as well as proteins involved in the self-assembly of protein-based microcompartments.
