My research has focused on the elucidation of the function of genes encoding glycosyltransferases, which can then be used to produce novel products, and of regulatory genes to improve the yield of antifungal compounds of Sch47554 and Sch47555 in Streptomyces sp. ATCC 55186. Another aspect of my research is to isolate new species of bacteria for novel antibiotic discovery.
