Bratati Mukerjee

Bratati Mukherjee works with the Price lab at ANU.

Bratati did her PhD with Prof Jim Moroney (a RIPE-CCM team member, Louisiana State University) on the molecular biology and physiology of the CO2 concentrating mechanism in Chlamydomonas (green micro-alga).

Bratati’s work focuses on processes involved in light activation of cyanobacterial bicarbonate transporters, and how these tricks might eventually be used for sophisticated control of bicarbonate transporters in the chloroplast of C3 crop plants.
