Research Interests: Molecular Analyses of DNA repair I am a microbiologist whose main areas of scientific expertise are in bacteriology & molecular biology. I enjoy conducting research in the regulation & evolution of bacterial pathogenicity, and the genetic responses of bacteria to environmental stimuli. In my lab, we use various microbiology, molecular biology and biochemistry techniques to examine the response of a model soil bacterium, Acinetobacter baylyi strain ADP1, to DNA damage. One project involves the UmuD protein, which typically functions in the SOS response pathway. In ADP1, this protein is larger than other UmuD homologs, is regulated differently than expected, and has novel functions, and we’re investigating how it does what it does. Another current project involves studying the other members of the genus Acinetobacter for their properties of DNA damage responses. Selected Publications:
