Applied Biotechnology

Research Focus

Strengthened through NIBN’s establishment of the Aaron Klug Integrated Centre for Biomolecular Structure and Function, current efforts in the Applied Biotechnology research group include 3D electron microscopy of cells and organelles, understanding magnetic biology to generate tailor-made particles for nano and biotechnological applications, understanding the structural basis of ligand-receptor interactions important in drug discovery, optimizing yields of recombinant protein expression with unnatural amino acids, and functional genomics and proteomics related to reproduction and biomineralization.
