PEOPLE IN THE BHAYA AND GROSSMAN LABORATORIES
Claudia Catalanotti: Postdoctoral fellow working on the acclimation of photosynthetic organisms to anoxia.
David Dewez: Postdoctoral fellow working on photosynthetic genes and their function and evolution.
Rosario Garcia-Gomez (left): Postdoctoral fellow working with the Bhaya and Grossman groups on the ways in which hot spring organisms utilize nutrients.
David Gonzalez-Ballester: Postdoctoral fellow who recently accepted a position in Spain and who worked on the acclimation of Chlamydomonas to sulfur deprivation.
Blaise Hamel: Graduate student working on proteins of unknown function associated with the green lineage and potentially with chloroplast/photosynthetic function.
Mark Heinnickel: Postdoctoral fellow working on the function of genes in the green lineage (associated with photosynthetic function)
Danielle Ikoma: Undergraduate working on screens to identify specific mutants in Chlamydomonas.
Sheila Jensen: Visiting graduate student from Michael Kühl’s laboratory in Denmark working on the diel cycling of carbon in the hot springs with both Grossman and Bhaya.
Leonardo Magneschi: Visiting graduate student working on anoxic responses in photosynthetic organisms.
Kate Mackey: Former graduate student who worked in collaboration with Adina Payton on photosynthesis and acclimation of phytoplankton in the oceans.
Wirulda Pootakham: Graduate student working on the sulfate transporters and their regulation in algae.
Eva Nowack: Working on the evolution of the chloroplast using Paulinella chromatophora as a model system.
Wenqiang Yang: Generating strains of Chlamydomonas with mutations in the various pathways of fermentation metabolism and dissection the way the lesions impact overall metabolism.
