Post-Doctoral position at the J. Craig Venter Institute, Rockville, Maryland, USA. Member of the Synthetic Biology & Bioenergy Team led by the Nobel-Laureate Hamilton O. Smith.

DETAILS OF RESEARCH:

Symbiotic interactions range from very tight (e.g. organelle endosymbioses) to diffuse associations (e.g. co-localization) with a broad spectrum in between (e.g. predation, parasitism, commensalism, mutualism). These interactions involve elaborate communication between the partners at the cellular level. Our major goal is the discovery of the potential of selected living interactions as specific sources of useful biomolecules and metabolites (e.g. antimicrobial peptides -AMPs-, biofuels, biomaterials, etc.). Microbial associations of various levels are analyzed in details and interrogated for the presence of such products.
