Kuchina Lab Participating in Project to Retool Microbes to Upcycle CO2

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.
