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.
Expertise: Microbiology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Systems Biology, Anaerobic Microbiology, Clostridial Genetics, Metabolic Engineering, Synthetic Biology, bacterial metabolism, carbon metabolism, Clostridium
I'm an experimentalist 'Pre-doc' (I still have to finish my PhD thesis) and my work on the COSMIC project will focus on setting up a metabolomic analysis method for Clostridium acetobutylicum.
In the past I have worked on metabolic engineering of the same organism by disrupting genes to asses their impact on acid and solvent formation.
I'm looking forward to joining the COSMIC web-community. It hopefully will all us to stay in touch and update each other on advances in the (computer)lab.
A molecular microbiologist with a passion for Clostridia! Interested in the development of more effective countermeasures (diagnosis, prevention & treatment) against pathogens, specifically Clostridium difficile and Clostridium botulinum as well as the exploitation of the medical and industrial properties of beneficial strains, specifically in cancer therapy and biofuel production
