In bacteria and archaea, the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)–associated (Cas) targeting complexes use CRISPR RNA (crRNA) guides to bind and destroy complementary nucleic acid targets. In the Type I-E CRISPR-Cas system in E. coli, these CRISPR transcripts are processed into short RNAs that are incorporated into a large ribonucleoprotein surveillance complex called [...]


In collaboration with the Kerfeld Lab we work on phycobilisomes (PBS): The PBS is an elaborate antenna that is responsible for light-harvesting in most cyanobacteria, the most abundant primary producers on Earth. The PBS captures incident sunlight and transfers the energy via a network of pigment molecules to the photosynthetic reaction centers. The PBS of [...]
