Virtual Speaker: Boo Shan Tseng, assistant professor in the School of Life Sciences, will be the featured speaker at an upcoming Virtual Lab Notes. Her talk is titled, "Understanding Bacterial Communities and Their Effect on Humans."
Many of the bacteria we come into contact with on a day-to-day basis resides in bacterial communities called biofilms. These bacterial communities play a significant role in our ecosystem and impact humans in industrial production, agriculture, and medicine in both beneficial and detrimental ways. Tseng will share with us why understanding biofilms is an important part of understanding the larger world we live in.
