Molecular Machines and Bacterial Cell Biology.

Project: Research

Project Description

A comprehensive understanding of how bacteria function will be delivered, through broad-reaching investigation of the molecular machines in the membranes of bacterial cells. Some of these machines are used for feeding, or locomotion, or for colonization of new environments. The machines are composed of independent parts; dissecting their complex biology will show how bacteria assemble the component parts into functional machines. The new research program combines strengths from fields of microbiology, high-resolution imaging, computer science and molecular cell biology and will link existing research groups in Australia with key laboratories overseas.
