Robert Landick

Scientific Director, Conversion Lead

Landick is an expert on structure, function and regulation of RNA polymerase, the central engine of gene expression. His work spans disciplines from single-molecule biochemistry to genome-scale mechanisms of gene regulation, and includes devising the first single-molecule observation of nucleic acid polymerases and elucidating the fundamental mechanism of nucleotide addition by RNA polymerase. Landick leads GLBRC research focused on engineering new microbial strains that consolidate optimal production of enzymes to release sugars from lignocellullose and optimal conversion of the released sugars to biofuels.
