Quantification of Famine Genes in the Bacteria Acinetobacter Baylyi

  • Phoebe Lostroh (Biology, Colorado College)
  • Bruce Voyles (Biology, Grinnell College)

Phoebe Lostroh and Bruce Voyles will collaborate on a common research interest in "bacterial physiology during starvation conditions that mimic some aspects of the typical feast and famine conditions bacteria encounter in nature." The FaCE grant will allow them to share NSF-funded equipment for cutting-edge research in this area and will eventually help them to enhance the laboratory experience of their undergraduates.
