Mira is a 2nd year PhD student in the Department of Pathology, and works in the field of synthetic biology. Her research focuses on using a regulatory network model to discover and test novel pathways in B. subtilis. She aims to use this network to eventually be able to visualise and predict the organism’s genomic behaviour in silico as well as in vitro with the addition and deletion of genetic circuits. The transcriptomic datasets from this work will not only be used to analyse novel interactions, but also enhance the network model, which can then develop further into multi-genome platform technology. The potential to picture transcriptomic data in genome-wide fashion and easily identify gene interactions, particularly those that have yet to be elucidated, dramatically open research avenues to better understanding of processes that sustain bacterial life.
