Emily Abraham

I am a PhD student with a background in molecular biology/ synthetic biology. My research in the Goss laboratory focuses on the manipulation of the biosynthetic gene clusters of natural products that have important medicinal properties. I am using a combination of genome mining and molecular biology approaches to try identify and heterologously express novel compounds, and to improve the bioactivities of known antibiotics by refactoring the antibiotic gene cluster and by creating analogues of the antibiotic.
