In support of developing technologies to visualize, manipulate, and explore the behavior of individual bacterial cells that form a mutually beneficial symbiosis with a squid. Funds will be used to create a high sensitivity sequencing instrument prototype and to develop new gene expression and microscopy methods to allow tracking how symbiotic bacteria change their behavior when transitioning from a seawater ecosystem to become an integral part of the squid host’s tissues.
