A post doctoral position is available to study the insertion of membrane
proteins into the thylakoid. The project involves the analysis and cloning
of extragenic suppressor mutations that suppress the negative effect of
mutations in the signal petide of cytochrome f. These supressors were
isolated so as to identify the protein translocation machinery of the
thylakoid. Interested persons should have experience in genetics and/or
molecular biology. For more information please contact Bruce Kohorn of Duke
University, Botany Dept. Durham NC, 27708. (email: kohorn at acpub.duke.edu.).
