We work on the functional evolution of toxin-antitoxins and proteins that interact with the ribosome, and that are involved in antibiotic resistance and response to stress. Our methods are bioinformatics, microbiology and biochemistry.
Biochemistry of antibiotic resistance conferred by Staphylococcus Aureus Vga(A) and other ABCF ATPases

Bioinformatic analyses of yeast ribosome profiling data to understand the role of enigmatic translation factors
Marje Kasari, post-doc:
Marje worked with us on biochemistry and microbiology of Entercoccus faecalis Lsa and other antibiotic resistance ABCF ATPases
We collaborate extensively with the lab of Vasili Hauryliuk
