BIO216 Unseen Life
Lecture MW 1:00-1:50 CH236
Lab M 2:00-4:45 LS211
For potential Senior Thesis projects, here is a copy of the Clark Lecture Series talk I gave in March 2009: Clark talk March 2009.ppt
I am interested in the mechanisms by which fungi are able to modify the characteristics of surface proteins. Potential projects would utilize many of the basic techniques of modern cell and molecular biology for the modification of common fungal model species. Specific methodologies can include: epitope tagging of yeast proteins, subcellular localization of specific components, interaction studies using techniques like the yeast two-hybrid system.
If you have a project in mind with a more general "Microbiology" slant, I am available for advice helping you with experimental design.
