Award Description: This collaborative project will use the model organism Vibrio fischeri to investigate how marine bacterial communities coordinate responses to changing and varied nutrient conditions, focusing on carbon sources and iron. Graduate and undergraduate students will be trained.
Project Description: We have continued evaluating mutants lacking CRP, to determine its contribution to regulation in response to carbon source. We have begun generating a cya mutant, and evaluated growth and bioluminescence of V. fischeri with different C-sources, which will also clarify the role of CRP. We had a multi-PI meeting at UGA to coordinate efforts as the project begins, and Dr. Stabb has begun soliciting quotes for the microplate reader necessary to conduct cAMP assays.
Jobs Summary: Two graduate students were supported part time to conduct research in Aug and Sept. (Total jobs reported: 0)
Project Status: Less Than 50% Completed
