New Members of the Coleman-Derr Lab

Bradie is planning to research the impact of root-associated bacteria on nitrogen cycling. using a combination of synthetic community-based experimentation, EcoFabs, and metagenomics. Nate’s background is in bacterial genomics and tuberculosis, but he is excited to transition to studying microbes associated with plants. His new research with focus on combining genome-resolved metagenomics with metatranscriptomics to explore species specific expression patterns in the sorghum microbiome following drought stress.
