Expertise

Scientific focus areas

Protein chemistry, protein/enzyme substrate interactions, structure-function relationships of carbohydrate active enzymes, biophysical, structural characterization of proteins, degradation of algal and plant biomass for e.g. biofuel, degradation of wastewater surplus sludge for e.g. biogas, and industrial applications of antifreeze proteins and surface binding sites in carbohydrate active enzymes.

 

Methods

Biochemistry: Molecular biology techniques for obtaining and cloning genes, recombinant protein production in Pichia pastoris and Escherichia coli, site-directed mutagenesis, protein purification, affinity gel electrophoresis, carbohydrate microarrays and enzymatic assays.

Biophysics: Protein X-ray crystallography, surface plasmon resonance, differential scanning calorimetry, isothermal titration calorimetry and circular dichroism spectroscopy.

Bioinformatics: Protein discovery through genome mining, functional subgrouping and phylogenetic analysis.
