Professor Steve Busby, Head of the School of Biosciences, travels to the EMBL Lab in Heidelberg this week to join the faculty teaching a Synthetic Biology course.


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.
