Dr. David Westenberg

Associate Professor of Biological Sciences



University of CA - Los Angeles, Doctor of Philosophy, 1991

Research Interests:

  • Regulation of the bradyrhizobium japonicum sdh operon encoding succinate dehydrogenase
  • Evidence for AHL autoinducer production by the soybean symbiont bradyrhizobium japonicum
  • High efficiency separation of microbial aggregates using capillary electrophoresis
  • separating microbes in the manner of molecules. 1. Capillary electrokinetic approaches
  • Succinate dehydrogenase (Sdh) from Bradyrhizobium japonicum is closely related to mitochondrial Sdh
