Prof. Gary Black BSc PhD (CNAA)

Technical Director

Qualifications:
BSc (Hons) in Applied Biology (1988)
PhD in Molecular Biology/Biochemistry (1992)

Research and Development Interests:
expression of recombinant enzymes in Escherichia coli & Pichia pastoris and their biochemical and structural characterisation
proteomic and metabolomic analysis of prokaryoates
analysis of recombinant protein heterogeneity
I am interested in the use of genomic and metagenomic data to discover novel enzyme specificities and activities, and the subsequent use of mutagenesis methods for optimization. I have expertise in a number of different enzyme groups including nitrile active enzymes, carbonyl reductases, carbohydrate active enzymes, and cytochrome P450s. My group uses a pair of Thermo Q-Exactives to perform proteomic and metabolomic analyses to follow the biochemistry of model organisms.
