The NUFEB Synthetic Biology team is hoping to discover more about how bacterial species and communities contribute to the breakdown and removal of synthetic estrogen (EE2), which is the most potent EDC present in wastewater. Using a number of molecular biology techniques we aim to improve EE2 breakdown and removal. This talk will update the current work I have been carrying out in the lab involving CRISPR-Cas9, assay development and target gene/protein identification and expression.
