    About This Project

    The bacterium Komagataeibacter rhaeticus has the ability to naturally produce bacterial cellulose (BC) which possesses many unique, highly useful properties suitable for a wide range of applications. We hypothesize that an optogenetic circuit in an engineered strain of K. rhaeticus grown in an optimized bioreactor can spatially control attachment of proteins to the surface of BC membranes to enable fine-tuning of these properties for different applications.
