Bacteria are much more than single-celled organisms swimming around. Bacteria also form communities called biofilm, and work together to maintain the microbial community. Biofilm is just one research area of ISB’s Kuchina Lab. In this Research Roundtable presentation, ISB Assistant Professor Dr. Anna Kuchina details her work studying biofilms.
Anna Kuchina is a co-PI of a UW-led five-year, $15 million Department of Energy grant that will enable an interdisciplinary team of synthetic biologists to engineer microbial genomes that transform carbon dioxide into high-value chemicals. Specifically, Kuchina will work on multiplexed single-cell transcriptomic profiling of CRISPR-engineered bacteria to determine if the reprogrammed cells behave as intended.
Dr. Anna Kuchina has joined ISB as assistant professor, and is our newest faculty member. Kuchina comes to ISB after completing her postdoctoral training in the Seelig Lab at the University of Washington. In this Q&A, we delve into Kuchina’s research career to date, her research areas of interest, and much more.
