Engineering a whole cell biocatalyst

    I have recently begun a BBSRC-funded studentship that links research programmes of the Geomicrobiology group at SEAES and the biocatalysis group at the Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre. The aim of this project is to develop a novel whole cell biocatalyst for commercially important biotransformations, and necessitates working at the interface between biology and the physical sciences, including molecular biology, organic chemistry, microbial physiology and nano-scale materials characterization.
