: Calystegins provide an exclusive carbon and nitrogen source to soil bacteria
: that can catabolize them, and they are potent glycosidase inhibitors [Molyneux
: et al. (1993), Arch Biochem Biophys 304, 81-88]. Research will involve
: plant genetic engineering, microbial ecology and genetics and collaborations
: with chemists. Applicants with experience in molecular biology are preferred.
