Professor of Microbiology
I'm an 'experimentalist' (molecular microbiologist) Postdoc working on regulation and peptide signaling in Clostridium acetobutylicum.
I'm also a SysMO-DB PAL (Product Application Liason) for COSMIC, working on data management including standards and integration with SysMO SEEK.

Optimisation of Bacillus subtilis for the secretion of heterologous proteins Therapeutic proteins (including those required for experimental purposes and clinical trials) are major products of biomanufacturing processes and considerable time and expense are expended to maximise the yield and quality of proteins produced in heterologous hosts. The production host of choice is the Gram-negative bacterium Escherichia coli for which many strains and expression systems have been developed. However,
