Deciphering the catalytic potential & the electron transfer pathways of microorganisms

Electron transfer pathways

Honours project: Study new enzymes and the associated ferredoxins from bacteria found in interesting environments (or genes from metagenomes) or which carry out novel reactions.

Synthesis using Nature’s catalysts; enzymes

Stephen Bell Biocatalyst 2

Honours project: Projects in this area involve the isolation and study new enzymes from bacteria of interest or taking existing enzymes and adapting them for chemical synthesis.
