Areas of Research
The Ryno Lab has three primary areas of research.
Inhibition of Chaperone Proteins
We use computational tools and biochemical assays to discover small molecule inhibitors for the E. coli chaperone SurA that could be useful in the development of new antibiotics
Activation of Stress-Responsive Transcription Factors
We study the influence of overexpressing stress-responsive transcription factors on the formation and composition of E. coli biofilms
Detection of Sub-Inhibitory Concentrations of Antibiotics
We aim to detect sub-inhibitory concentrations of antibiotics by monitoring stress-responsive transcriptional pathways at the mRNA level.
We welcome all undergraduate students who are interested in our research to email lryno (at) oberlin (dot) edu.
