PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Redesign and engineering of the autotransporter β-barrel domain

We have exploited the modular structure of autotransporters and their biogenesis pathway to secrete folded heterologous recombinant proteins into the culture medium through substitution of the native passenger domain with the heterologous protein of interest.

This project is open to Honours, Bachelor, Masters and PhD students
