Nathan Byrne

Postgraduate Researcher

Nathan is investigating the ability of cyanobacteria to make interesting and diverse natural products.

Cyanobacteria have long been overlooked, however the recent rise in availability of genome sequencing has elucidated their huge biosythetic potential.

Nathan aims to use genomics to identify biosythetic gene clusters, express gene clusters of interest in a heterologous host, and structurally characterise the products
