Biological chemistry researchers on the Norwich Research Park study a wide range of different molecular processes in bacteria and other microorganisms.
Scientists across the park study microbiological processes at the molecular and atomic levels, and use this knowledge to produce and manipulate novel natural products (e.g. antibiotics), industrially useful enzymes and biological vectors.
Other research is focussed towards the molecular interactions that take place at the host-pathogen interface during plant infection, and the electrochemistry of mineral-respiring bacteria living on rocks.
Science on the Norwich Research Park is supported by several state-of-the-art biological chemistry platforms including crystallography, proteomics, surface plasmon resonance and NMR spectroscopy.
