Effect of methanogenesis on the metabolic output of microbial communities

Advisor: Nick Youngblut

PhD Program: International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) 'From Molecules to Organisms'
Location: Max Planck Institute for Biology, Ley Lab

Project description

In this project, you will design synthetic bacterial communities and test how the addition of methanogenesis impacts their metabolic outputs with comparisons of metabolic models and metabolite measurements. This work will be carried out using bioreactors systems.

More information on Ruth Ley and  Nick Youngblut and a selection of recent publications can be found on their pages.
