  • Streptomyces produced 70% of commercial important antibiotics, genetic modification of Streptomyces could improve production of antibiotics or create new antibiotics. My research concentrated on new strategy of up-regulation of antibiotic biosynthesis and activating cryptic antibiotic biosynthesis cluster.
