Heather Feaga, Microbiology

The Feaga Lab uses structural, biochemical, and omics approaches to study bacterial ribosomes. Our research aims to identify new protein factors that interact with ribosomes and that keep protein synthesis running smoothly. Students will use transposon mutagenesis coupled to deep sequencing (Tn-Seq) to identify genes that are required for accurate protein synthesis. They will also use cutting-edge techniques like ribosome profiling and gain skills in genetics and molecular microbiology.
