The genomics and evolution of carbon fixation.

We use the evolution of carbon fixation as a model for studying the origin and evolution and processes and pathways. Our work includes genomic studies of the reverse TCA cycle (e.g., herehere and here), methylotrophy (here), Carboxydotrophs (e.g., here), plastid evolution and/or the Calvin cycle (e.g., herehereherehereand here), and chemosynthetic symbionts (herehere).
