Bacterial diversity and tropical infections

I am a molecular microbiologist with an interest in molecular mechanisms, synthetic biology, and sequencing technology. I have worked in industry engineering bacteria for drug discovery (Isomerase Therapeutics, Cambridge) and for enhanced plant transformation (Tropic Biosciences, Norwich).
