Scott Scholz

Ph.D. Candidate, Cellular and Molecular Biology Program


B.S. University of Oregon 2010. Major: Biology Minor: Chemistry
Research Interests

I am interested in the evolution of genome structure and how cellular organization in bacteria affects gene expression. Using high-throughput approaches, we are generating high-resolution maps of the bacterial gene expression landscape from a standardized reporter. I am also interested in developing tools for improving the stability and productivity of synthetic microbial production systems.
