“Understanding Streptomyces Biogeography and Trait Evolution in the Soil Ecosystem” - Janani Hariharan

Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 12:20pm

Emerson Hall, 135

Janani Hariharan
Graduate Student, SCS

Research Group: Dr. Daniel Buckley (Lab)
I study how microbes evolve and disperse in the soil. To answer questions in this field, I draw on methods and theories from microbiology, ecology and genomics. More specifically, I am interested in the bacterial genus Streptomyces, which is famous for its antibiotic production and characteristic petrichor smell. My research revolves around their habitat preferences and biogeography, Streptomyces taxonomy and phylogeny, and the evolution of antibiotic production in this group of bacteria.
