 Heterometallic cluster of the Orange Protein

Research Field: Bio-synthetic Inorganic Chemistry.

Keywords:  life-like machine to machine like-life, synthetic biomimetic model compounds, engineering iron-sulfur protei.

The post-doctoral research project consists in the spectroscopic and structural characterization of a small iron-sulfur protein from a new operon that codes for the heterometallic Orange Protein from Desulfovibrio desulfuricans G20.

Synthesis of biomimetic compounds to model the heterometallic cluster of the Orange Protein.
