Our placement aims

While all three of our Nuffield Research Placement students have some aspects of their project in common, such as collecting a soil sample and extracting DNA from it, they each have a different aspect to look at with their analysis of our DNA sequencing results so far.

Daria is investigating the diversity of bacteria, eukaryote and archaea phyla in our existing urban soil samples, Mia is investigating the presence of ESKAPE bacteria and other human pathogens and Sarah is investigating microbial sources of antibiotics.
