About Xiongfeng Dai
I work at the School of life sciences, Central China Normal University as a principal investigator of Quantitative and Synthetic Microbiology. I am interested in elucidating the basic design principle of microbial cells, including coordination of protein translation capacity, ribosome synthesis, RNA transcription with cell growth; bacterial cell size and cell cycle regulation; in vivo action mode of antibiotics; bacterial stress response and the role of water in regulating bacteria physiology. The ultimate goal, as I pursue, is to elucidate the intrinsic constraint of growth rate of microbial cells.
