THE BAKSHI Laboratory of Systems and Synthetic Microbiology

- understanding and engineering microbes in and around us -

We are an interdisciplinary team of scientists and engineers interested in understanding and engineering microbial systems to learn about nature and to apply this knowledge in health, agriculture, and industry. A major focus in our current research is to understand and combat the emergence and spread of antibiotic persistence and resistance in microbes. Our primary tools are - molecular biology, single-cell microfluidics, time-lapse microscopy, machine-learning, and computational modelling.
