Hualan Liu an ENIGMA Researcher in Adam Deutschbauer‘s Lab at Lawrence Berkeley Lab announces a powerful genetic tool for gene function annotation, essential to advance our understanding of microbial biology and the impact of those genetic traits on their ecosystems.  She says “We developed a parts-based strategy for constructing and evaluating hundreds of transposon delivery […]
Parts-Based Strategy Speeds Up Gene Function Annotation

ENIGMA researchers at Lawrence Berkeley Lab and University of Missouri systematically used high-throughput genetics to fill gaps in amino acid biosynthesis pathways. This explains how bacteria can grow on their own, in contrast to widespread speculation that bacteria cross-feed amino acids among community members. According to Morgan Price, for many bacteria with sequenced genomes, we […]
