I am responsible for the construction of metal binding peptide periplasm display module for Pb(II). This module aims at binding Pb(II) ions in the periplasmic space using the engineered anti-parallel coiled coil which is transported with the help of DsbA signal sequence. During the process several other intermediate plasmids are also constructed. Furthermore, I contribute to the characterization of Pc promoters of different intensity.
