Isoprene Degradation

Comments Off on Isoprene Degradation Projects

Isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene) is a volatile, climate-active gas, produced by all manner of living organisms, including human beings – it is the most abundant volatile organic carbon compound in our bodies! Isoprene is thought to be involved in climate control and in the biogeochemical cycling of carbon – from which our interests stem. We are particularly interested in the pathways and genes involved in isoprene degradation in a variety of model organisms with the hope to develop functional markers for future ecological studies.
