Research Interests

I am interested in studying the regulatory effects of nucleoid associated proteins, lsr2 and lsrl, in cryptic biosynthetic gene clusters of Streptomyces venezuelae. I am also interested in predicting condition-dependent gene expression profiles from promoter sequences using uropathogenic Escherichia coli as a model.
