Structure and Function
The goal of our laboratory is to elucidate the structure and function of proteins involved in the passage of genetic information. We are developing and utilizing the combined techniques of Molecular Biology, Protein Chemistry and X-ray and Neutron Crystallography to decipher the molecular mechanism and action of specific hyperthermophilic proteins.

Synthetic Biology and Engineering

Strategies and tools for the rapid construction of new protein complexes are invaluable for biotechnology applications. Our studies include the design and engineering of macromolecular systems using gene synthesis and structural biology tools.
