Understanding Microbial Communities; Function, Structure and Dynamics

The composition of a microbial community is a major indicator of a communitys metabolic potential. However, the spatial structure of that community, imposed or inherently present, can dictate its extant activity. We are keen to explore how we can steer the spatial structure of open and synthetic microbial communities to select or stabilize a target community metabolism from its constituent members. I will provide experimental and computational insights in our efforts to engineer spatially structured communities to generate redox-stratified biofilms for autotrophic nitrogen removal. These communities can provide test grounds for ecological enquiries and building blocks for technological applications.
