This research will focus on the molecular mechanisms by which the TIM23 complex mediates the transport of nuclear-encoded proteins into mitochondria using a host of biochemical, biophysical, and structural approaches.
Bacteria’s Game of ‘Telephone’ Foils Microbiologists’ Eavesdropping: While human families are easily illustrated as a tree, bacterial families look more like a heap of branches. Scientists are trying to trace the connections between those branches in an effort to learn more about the bacteria that harm us, and those that do not. UConn’s Peter Gogarten […]
entitled “Establishment Of Genomic Tools For Investigating Fish Pathogens”. As part of this grant they will sequence the genomes of several important fish pathogens, Yersinia ruckeri and Aeromonas spp, perform metatranscriptomic analyses of Y. ruckeri and Flavobacterium physcrophilium, and develop a cell culture model to assess virulence of different bacterial fish pathogens.
