The Daniel group focuses primarily on basic aspects of bacterial cell biology. The group has investigated cell division and growth, using a combination of genetic analysis combined with sub-cellular localisation techniques, with the objective of defining the essential components of both the cell division and cell elongation complexes and shed light on how they are positioned in the cell to fulfill their function.
