I am focusing on cellular redox homeostasis in prokaryotic micro-organisms, and specifically on factors associated
with nicotinamide adenine cofactor [NADP(H) and NAD(H)] metabolism in E. coli and photoautotrophic cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803. The principal objective is to study how NADPH-metabolism is regulated. The aim is to develop and verify a model that describes the regulation of NADP(H)-metabolism in the prokaryotic model species. The project is commenced by using both computational and experimental biology methodologies, and information-rich networks will be created and publicly distributed for both E. coli and cyanobacteria.
