Jason has developed a microbial system that can be used to safely and reliably label items as they progress through different locations. This technology can have important applications for food safety, health, commerce, and security. Now, as a Schmidt Science Fellow, Jason aims to pivot into machine learning to explore the enormous diversity of organisms that exists in nature. By combining computational and experimental approaches, Jason plans to accelerate the discovery of new biological systems and harness them to build broadly applicable tools.
