Professor Timothy Donohue

University of Wisconsin-Madison

The principal investigator, and director of the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC), Donohue is an expert in how microbes harness and convert solar energy. His laboratory researches genetic pathways and networks that microbes use to generate biomass or biofuels from sunlight. His work employs genome sequence, microarrays, proteomics and molecular techniques to determine how the energy in sunlight or renewable nutrients is diverted into cell biomass or biofuel formation.
