Identifying and Characterizing Novel Uncultivable Microbial Species Using Single-cell Genomics

Program Period: 
7/1/17 - 6/30/18

The PI's aim to employ single-cell genomics and transcriptomics as a cultivation-independent approach to identify and characterize novel prokaryotic species from the hindgut of large herbivores, thereby constructing an atlas of design principles necessary for the production of value-added chemicals in future.
