Evolutionary map of life’s electron transfer reactions

For activities to uncover how the metal-containing enzymes responsible for the critical electron transfer reactions that turn basic elements such as H, O, C, S, and N into biologically active molecules have evolved. Funding will be used to develop bioinformatic approaches to produce independent evolutionary relationships based on protein sequence or protein structure and to generate hypotheses for how the bio-catalyzed electron transfer reactions arose and now function.
