Investigations of Structure-Function Relationship in Biological Macromolecules

Our research focuses on probing the relationship of the 3D structure to function in biological macromolecules. These studies provide clues to mechanisms of fundamental processes in living organisms, help to predict function from 3D structure and give insights for engineering new systems.
My areas of specialisation include molecular biolgy and cloning, protein isolation and characterization and 3D structure determination using synchrotron X-ray solution scattering and diffraction techniques. As can be seen from descriptions of our current projects applications of our work could range from designing new systems for environmental pollution remediation to pathogen resistance in plants.
