Personal profile

Biography

Daouda Traore works in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Monash University as a Research Fellow. Born and raised in Bamako (Mali), he received his formal education in Grenoble (France) with a B.Sc in Chemistry, a M.Sc in Chemistry and a PhD in Chemical Biology with a major focus on protein chemistry and X-ray crystallography.

Research interests

The major focus of Daouda's work is on understanding the molecular basis for transfer of antibiotic resistance determinants in Gram-positive organism. The study combine molecular genetic tools with biophysics and structural biochmistry techniques including X-ray crystallography and cryo-Electron Microscopy.
