CBE Seminar: Genetic requirements for SRB biofilm formation in bioreactors and the rat colon
- Thursday, March 7, 2019 from 4:10pm to 5:00pm
- Roberts Hall, 301 - view map
Dr. Kara De Leon is a research scientist in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. Kara received her PhD in microbiology at Montana State University where she also worked at the CBE with Dr. Matthew Fields. Her current research is part of ENIGMA (http://enigma.lbl.gov/), where she is studying genetic drivers for key phenotypes of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) in the subsurface. Her talk “Genetic requirements for Desulfovibrio vulgaris Hildenborough biofilm formation in bioreactors and the rat colon,” will highlight this research as well as the role of biofilm-producing sulfate-reducing bacteria in a rat model of colon cancer.
