Gareth Butland is a Principal Investigator in the Biotechnology development component. Gareth has a background in microbial bioenergetics, nutrient cycling and the development and application of high throughput functional genomics tools to assay for both physical and genetic interaction in microbes. As part of ENIGMA the Butland group utilizes these approaches to investigate processes in ENIGMA model microbes that are key to their survival in specific environmental niches and how these organisms cope with environmental stress such as the the presence of oxygen, heavy metals and competing microbes.
