Microbial Physiology

Diversity of metabolic and energy-generating pathways.


The research interests of Mark A. Eiteman are in fermentation and biotechnology with emphasis on microbial processes to generate fuels and chemicals. He has special interests in nutrient-limited processes, which can be used very effectively to drive a metabolic network toward a particular biochemical product.  Dr. Eiteman focuses on…

Research in Lin laboratory focuses on medical mycology: We study the molecular mechanisms of fungal pathogenesis and microbial communication and development. We also seek to develop novel antifungal treatments and vaccines. We primarily use two diverged fungal pathogens in our investigation: Cryptococcus neoformans and Aspergillus fumigatus.…

Prokaryotes are the dominant form of life on earth, representing an enormous biomass and number of individual cells. They are so diverse that it is misleading to give them a common name. In one way, they are really just what are left after the familiar plants, animals, fungi and protists are named. Nevertheless, they are the engines that make…
