I convene modules and provide lectures about molecular microbiology and biochemistry and convene a group research project for undergraduate students in which we manipulate bacterial genomes to analyze CRISPR-Cas and antibiotic resistance mechanisms.

Current Research

We use genetic analysis and protein biochemistry to understand molecular biology of (a) CRISPR-cas immunity (b) Homologous recombination. Both require manipulation of nucleic acids by nuclease, helicase and related enzymes (e.g. Cas1-Cas2, Cas3, RecG, HelQ) and recent research developments suggest that CRISPR-cas and DNA repair-recombination processes are functionally linked in bacteria and archaea. We are also interested in biochemistry of Hel308 and HelQ helicases.
