      Biology - General  Cell Biology & Biophysics  
      My research interests are focused on how structure is correlated with the function of proteins, and how to modify these proteins for desired protein outcomes. Proteins of current interest include the very large pectate-degrading family, which are enzymes secreted by bacteria and fungi which play important roles in virulence in plant diseases. We are also interested in the evolution of semenogelin proteins involved in sexual reproduction of animals. We primarily take a biochemical and biophysical approach to our studies, including site-specific mutagenesis, protein expression, and X-ray crystallography.
