What We Do

The research in the Barnes group focuses on using synthetic biology and computational methods across a range of areas. In general, we aim to make biology more 'engineerable', predictable and robust. Some of the projects which we have studied are listed below.


  • Computational approaches for controlling mixed microbial communities
  • Computation using patterning of bacterial colonies
  • Engineering the microbiome for therapeutic and diagnostic applications
  • Construction of therapeutically relevant bacterial biosensors
  • Computational design and characterisation of synthetic gene networks
