About our lab

Dr. Nick Coleman, Research Fellow in Synthetic Biology

Our lab aims to understand the activities of microbes in their natural habitats and to use synthetic biology methods to enable them to perform useful tasks for humans. A common thread is to understand how microbes adapt and evolve; this underpins diverse projects such as biodegradation of pollutants, tracking antibiotic resistance genes and plasmids, and evolving enzymes in-vitro for industrial applications.
