Thermophile and Microbial Biochemistry and Biotechnology Unit
Director: Associate Professor Ian McDonald
The Thermophile and Microbial Biochemistry and Biotechnology Unit carries out research primarily on microorganisms associated with extreme environments. The Unit co-ordinates fundamental and applied research at this University and elsewhere on thermophilic bacteria, genes and enzymes. Research is predominantly funded by research contracts and collaborations exist with many national and overseas laboratories.
