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.

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!
