Richard Cyr

Professor Emeritus of Biology

B. Tracy Nixon

Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Structural and functional basis of cellulose synthesis. Using Physcomitrella patens and other organisms as model systems, we are learning how plants make cellulose for building new cell wall. The studies use methods of molecular biology and cryoEM to characterize the enzyme as a monomer, and when it assembles into its larger 'Cellulose Synthase Complex '(CSC for short). The aim is to understand cellulose synthesis to explain fundamentals of cell wall biology in plants, and to enable manipulation of its synthesis for applications in fields of bioenergy and materials.

Xin Zhang

Assistant Professor of Chemistry; Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Paul Berg Early Career Professorship in the Eberly College of Science
Developing chemical tools to monitor cellular stresses that influence protein folding in real time. Deciphering how the energy landscapes associated with proper protein folding and function are regulated by the cellular folding environment. Examining how this regulation leads to significant biological consequences.
