Engineering Reliable Genetic Circuits for Characterization and Remediation of Soil Ecologies
The goal of this project is to develop genetic circuits that can be implemented in engineered microbes operating in (laboratory-based) soil environments that are able to sense and manipulate the concentration of small molecules present in the soil. We plan to use phosphorous as our initial molecule of interest, as a model for other chemical species present in soils.
