Professor Otto Cordero and Postdoc Gabriel Leventhal publish new study in Nature Microbiology

October 12th, 20182018 News in Brief

Assistant Professor Otto Cordero, postdoc Gabriel Leventhal, graduate student Carles Boix and research affiliate Tim Enke, published a new paper in Nature Microbiology, showing that replicate microbial communities assemble into different community types depending on the specific fine-scale genetic strain identity of the individual community members. Their results show that strain-level differences in bacterial species can be important drivers of community organization and dynamics. Read more here.

Professor Markus Buehler and Professor Benedetto Marelli’s MIT – IBM project is highlighted

October 5th, 20182018 News in Brief

On October 3, McAfee Professor of Engineering and Department Head Markus Buehler and Paul M Cook Career Development Assistant Professor Benedetto Marelli’s MIT – IBM project was highlighted at the MIT – IBM AI Lab anniversary event. Their project is focused on preventing food spoilage in order to feed those in need using artificial intelligence. Designing edible, non-toxic coatings from novel proteins could preserve food for a longer period of time. Read more about their research here.
