Hi everyone, I am happy to share the findings of my research. We could successfully express and purify a novel enzyme, that is encoded by a species of virus belonging to the most abundant viruses in human gut.

Hi, I'm Polina Foteva and I'm a Biochemstry student in St Andrews University. I am interested in the properties of enzymes and mechanism of biocatalysis. It is really exciting to be part of the Laidlaw Network and I can't wait for my first summer as a Laidlaw scholar.
