Oxidative Stress using Bacterial Models
Our laboratory studies oxidative stress using bacterial models. We are particularly interested in global gene regulation in response to oxidative damage, and we use genetic and genomic approaches to understand antioxidant functions. Current projects include the whole-genome transcriptional profiling of E. coli's response to oxidative damage using gene arrays and the characterization of novel genes induced by oxidative stress and with possible roles in the repair of oxidative damage.
