To understand the processes by which biological systems especially those producing antibiotics grow in order to maximise the yield
Issues Involved or Addressed
In order to isolate novel antibiotic-producing bacteria from underexplored sites, such the Atacama Desert in Chile, we are employing colour-based dereplication and Hyper Spectral Imaging to identify organisms that synthesise potentially novel bioactive compounds. This project draws together Microbiology, Image Processing and Mathematics students to apply multi-disciplinary skills in overcoming the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance.
