Fe-S clusters are ubiquitous and essential co-factors in all living cells. They are present in important proteins involved in transcription, translation, DNA replication, DNA repair, amino acid synthesis, nucleotide metabolism, iron uptake and regulation, etc. Fe-S cluster biosynthesis is also considered the reason for the universal existence of mitochondria in all eukaryotes, since Fe-S cluster maturation involves essential cellular functions. Heterologous expression of eukaryotic Fe-S proteins is one of the most difficult tasks in synthetic biology, due to the sensitivity of these proteins to different environmental factors (e.g. oxygen). Anaerobic microbial eukaryotes (protozoa) have developed unique tools to overcome these difficulties. Among these are Fe-S cluster assembly machineries that have diversified their functions to survive the specialised lifestyles of these organisms.

Postdoc on horizontal gene transfer and genome evolution PDF Print E-mail

An NSF-funded postdoctoral position is available to work on a collaborative project between the labs of Dr. Jeff Palmer (Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington) and Dr. Claude dePamphilis (Department of Biology, Penn State University, University Park). This project is a follow-up to papers on the mitochondrial and nuclear genomes of the basal angiosperm Amborella that were led by our labs and published in the Dec. 20, 2013 issue of Science. The project focuses on evolutionary gene transfer, including transfer of mitochondrial and plastid sequences to the nucleus of Amborella, and the extensive horizontal transfer of foreign mitochondrial sequences to the mitochondrion of Amborella.
