Systems biology of bacteria includes research into the following areas:

  • Prokaryotic gene regulation (Professor Steve Busby)
  • Analysis and evolution of gene regulatory networks (Dr David Grainger)
  • Cooperation and communication of microbes in biofilms, metabolic division of labour, individual-based modelling, systems biology (Dr Jan-Ulrich Kreft)
  • DNA nucleotide sequenceBacterial and archaeal stress response, chaperones and in vivo protein folding 
    (Dr Pete Lund)
  • Molecular biology and functional genomics of bacterial foodborne pathogens 
    (Professor Charles Penn)
  • Bacterial plasmid replication, stability & transfer; polyketide synthesis 
    (Professor Chris Thomas)
