Unique Aspects of the Calvin Cycle in Bacterial Chemosynthetic Symbioses

I am interested in understanding evolutionary adaptations of bacteria to symbiotic and free-living lifestyles. Using molecular genetics, biochemical and physiological techniques I am testing hypotheses that arise from genomic and transcriptomic data about gene function. I am particularly interested in questions of tradeoff between energy efficiency and reactions rates of key cellular processes such as the Calvin-Benson-Bassham cycle.
