I am postdoc in the group of Prof Ian Booth in Aberdeen working on the biochemical and biophysical characterisation of bacterial channels.
My background is physics engineering & biomedical engineering. I did my PhD in Surrey on the modelling of response of mammalian cells to radiation of different qualities.
I have been working at the University of Aberdeen since November 2007 as a theoreticien research fellow of the KOSMOBAC project. We are investigating the homeostasis of ions in bacteria E. coli. I have been working at a model of the buffering capacity of the cytopplasm, arising from the presence of weak acids and bases. We have
I am final year PhD student in Prof Ian Booth's lab and a microbiologist by trade. I am interested in how enteric bacteria cope with stress and what systems they employ to increase their chances of survival, in particular upon methylglyoxal stress.
Global metabolic switching in Streptomyces coelicolor
Antibiotics are made during the second phase of growth when there is a transition in metabolism from primary to secondary metabolism. Primary metabolism is growth related and involves all the normal cellular activities associated with cell growth and division. Whereas secondary metabolism is non-growth linked and is non-essential but many important activities occur during this phase which help the bacterium survive.
