I have collaborative projects ongoing with several groups from both within and without the University of Warwick.
Prof. Mitch Singer (University of California, Davis): Pho-like two-component systems of M. xanthus involved with fruiting body formation.
Dr. Sara Kalvala (Department of Computer Science) : Computational emulation of biological signalling pathways, using motility of M. xanthus as a model system. PhD student: Antony Holmes
Other collaborative projects include: Analysis of the Red pathways responsible for regulating the timing of development in M. xanthus with Dr. P. Higgs (now at the MPI, Marburg; Abstract), and projects to sequence and annotate the genomes of two myxobacteria; Myxococcus xanthus TIGR and Monsanto) and Sorangium cellulosum.
