I am a BBSRC SWBio DTP funded student co-supervised by Dr Tiffany Taylor at the University of Bath and Dr Edze Westra. My project investigates how bacteria evolve to control new genes that they acquire. Through experimental evolution studies I will be following the evolutionary consequences for fitness and transcriptional regulation after horizontal gene transfer of CRISPR-Cas genes between Pseudomonas species of bacteria.
