Welcome to the Dixon Lab Site.

We are a biotechnology research group interested in applications of genetic regulation.

  • Development and application of whole cell biosensors for the detection of molecular markers of biotechnological and biomedical importance
  • Application of tuneable expression systems to match recombinant protein expression demand to host cell synthetic capacity
  • Optimisation of periplasmic secretion and membrane protein production
  • Allostery, molecular recognition, and context engineering for biological components
