Doctor of Philosophy!

The first PhD student of the Asally lab, Marco Delise, successfully defended his thesis and turns into Dr Marco Dlise!! (with minor corrections)

Marco is now in Entrepreneur First program, exploring innovation ideas. https://www.joinef.com/

We are all very proud that he defended well, very sad that he is leaving us, and very excited that he is up for next crazy ideas!

People are the real "products" of the lab.

MeniFluidics! An easy and powerful technique for patterning microbes

New preprint is now available at arXiv at https://arxiv.org/abs/1910.01595.

This is an exciting interdisciplinary study in collaboration with Vasily Kantsler (Associate Professor, Department of Physics, University of Warwick)!

We present a new easy and robust method of patterning bacterial colonies for biomaterial engineering, synthetic biology, bio-art and basic research into microbial ecology and biophysics. An exciting feature of this method is that it is very easy. It also doesn't need any expensive tool. We hope that this method will unleash the potential of microbial pattern engineering!

Welcome!

Poppy joined the lab to do a summer project in the Interdisciplinary Summer School.

Poppy is a student of Physics at Warwick and will look into bacterial membrane potential during cell divisions. We have quite many people with physics background.

New paper in iScience

How can bacteria do quality control of their offspring spores?

Quality control is an inherently complex task because quality is difficult to define and requires an integration of multi-dimentional inputs. In this work, we reported that electrical polarization of developing spores (forespores) is coupled with a quality-control system.

Many congrats to the team, especially Teja and Jonatan!

Teja was the first member of the lab and it's great to see this work is now published in iScience, a new open-access interdisciplinary journal by Cell Press.
