The Bioluminescence and Biophotonics research group is a multidisciplinary group that conducts research into bioluminescence and the molecular diversity of insect enzymes. The group is one of the world leaders in the study of luciferase enzymes. More broadly, the studies range from the biodiversity of bioluminescent organisms, through the biochemistry of their bioluminescent systems, to the biotechnological and environmental applications of bioluminescence. The group's main expertise is the structure, function and evolution of luciferase enzymes, and their engineering for the development of analytical reagents, luminescent biosensors and cell markers for bioimaging.
