A team of students led by Biomedical Engineering professor Lingchong You will predict pattern formation of bacterial colonies by integrating experimental results with both mechanistic modelling and machine learning methods. Bacterial colonies have the capability to self-organize into beautiful and intricate patterns. Students will contribute to a method for controlling the outcome of colony spatial patterning, which is an important challenge facing the field of synthetic biology.
