Ming C. Hammond

biochemist: Biosciences

Media contact: Dan Krotz,, (510) 486-4019


Ming Hammond’s long-term research goals are to investigate the molecular basis of function for natural regulatory RNAs and to learn how to adapt these RNAs for new applications inside cells, including molecular sensing and gene control. Her research group employs organic synthesis, biochemistry, genetics, and bioinformatics to study small molecule-RNA and protein-RNA interactions that are involved in gene regulation in bacteria and plants. This research aims to provide new insights into the regulation of gene expression in these organisms, and furthermore has applications toward engineering bacteria and plants for biofuel production and other biotechnology projects.
