We study Molecules, Microbes and their Evolution!

Kia ora! You've arrived at the homepage of Drs Monica Gerth and Wayne Patrick. We each have broad research interests, but we are generally fascinated by the structure and function of proteins, microbial metabolism and behaviour, and how it all evolved.

We are based in the School of Biological Sciences at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. We run a joint lab, with separate research groups clustered around specific projects of interest.

More information about our people and projects can be found by wandering around this website.
