Research interests: Genomes are complete maps
of all genetic information or hereditary material possessed by an
organism. Using information from all publicly available microbial
genomes, I aim to determine the organization of gene products into
'functional modules'. Where a functional module would be a set of gene
products working together to attain a particular biological function.
Because of the many microbial genome projects, there is a great deal of
genes that lack information as to what their functions are. In
addition, because genes within species continue to evolve, it is
crucial to be able to determine if changes have a functional
consequence, i.e. if the gene products will do something different. I
am seeking to classify all modules, and genes within, from most stable
to least stable –functionally speaking. This research might have
applications to the development of antimicrobial agents (stable,
functionally-tied, genes) and for finding the most appropriate genes
for "pathway engineering" (plastic, functionally versatile, or more
