School of Biosciences

Research in Steve Busby’s lab is concerned with understanding the molecular mechanisms that control gene expression in bacteria, with particular attention to studying the regulation of transcription initiation in Escherichia coli. Much of the recent work has focussed on the expression of virulence determinants in pathogenic strains.

Dr Peter Winn

Dr Peter Winn

Lecturer

School of Biosciences

 

Dr Winn specialises in molecular modelling of biomolecules, including structural bioinformatics and anlysis of protein amino-acid sequences. His interest is at the interface of protein evolution and function, and how these are related to biological organisation. As well as trying to gain general insight into the rules that govern bio-molecules,  of ...
