My goal is to engineer polyketide synthases (PKS) to produce commodity chemicals and drug molecules in Streptomyces. For this I have focused on host engineering and synthetic biology tools development. I am also interested in revealing the mechanism of novel reactions on assembly-line enzymes (including PKSs, nonribosomal peptide synthetases (NRPSs) and their hybrids).
