Projects per year
Research in the Tucker lab is focussed on the application of genomics to the following areas:
1. Exploiting Pseudomonas for industrial biotechnology and the sustainable production of plastics
2. Investigating the mode of action of DNA binding antibiotics and their impact on transcription
3. Using metagenomics to identify useful microorganisms from the environment
4. Pathogen genomics and antimicrobial resistance
