Microbiome Characterization with CZE

Description:

Microbes often grow in complex communities, called microbiomes. Communal properties such as robustness and division of labor are among the benefits to the organisms within a microbiome. Their interactions have been known to promote survival in otherwise unfavorable environments, but present obstacles to researchers across several fields. The greatest obstacles are identification of individual organisms and their specific contribution to the microbiome. Researchers at the University of Notre Dame have made an automated device to separate and concentrate bacterial cells for analysis.
