Mechanisms and Process in Biochemical Adaptation

Using experimental and bioinformatics approaches, Dr Long’s research focuses on how biosynthetic pathways have evolved to generate the rich chemical diversity found within living cells. By studying biosynthesis at the molecular level in Streptomyces bacteria and during complex marine invertebrate-microbial symbioses, Dr Long hopes to gain insight into the chemical ecology of these compounds and to assess their potential for drug discovery.
