microbial physiology

Bryant, Donald

Research Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry
Chemistry and Biochemistry
Montana State University (The Pennsylvania State University)

My laboratory studies the physiology, metabolism, genetics, and genomics of chlorophyll-based phototrophs. We employ DNA sequencing, RNAseq, genetic and biochemical methods in our work. Goals include the discovery of structural and functional relationships in the components of light-energy transduction as well as an understanding of the metabolic interactions that define phototroph community composition and structure. I have been a faculty member for the past 31 years, and have been actively involved in teaching, research and service during that time.
