Welcome to Saier Lab!


Our laboratory has three primary research interests, one concerned with transcriptional and metabolic regulation in bacteria, a second with transport protein evolution, and a third with the recently identified process of transposon-mediated directed mutation.

We also maintain the IUBMB-approved Transporter Classification DataBase, TCDB (http://www.tcdb.org), which classifies transport systems found in all living organisms on Earth into five categories: class, subclass, family, subfamily and transport system.
