MBA#15 Diana Machado de Sousa (Microbial Special Series)

Multi-culture fermentation is the next frontier for biotech. Can we create a community of microbes who can do the job? We explore various metabolic pathways to learn more about how syntrophic metabolism works. Can we develop natural catalysts by creating robust systems? And what is the effect of Bacteriophage to these cultures?

The Microbes Series zooms out and leave the microscope and our traditional human perspective on viruses  behind for a minute. What would happen if we look at microbes as one of the players in a much broader system? How does this change our perspective of Spaceship Earth and the role of the web of life? What lessons can we draw from nature‚Äôs logic on how our Spaceship Earth operates? Together with specialists in the field of virology, microbiology and biochemistry we will take a journey into an unknown world of interesting insights. Combining insights and working towards cross disciplinary solutions and the essential questions we might have been overlooking. And who knows we might discover one or two innovative applications along the way.
