Center for Biofilm Engineering Seminar Series Presents Dr. Qian Wang
- Thursday, February 2, 2017 from 4:10pm to 5:00pm

Dr. Qian Wang has a background in environmental microbiology. While completing her Ph.D. research at Huazhong Agricultural University in China on the arsenate usage in arsenite-oxidizing bacteria, she also studied the interaction between arsenite-resistant bacteria and populus in arsenic contaminated soils. Qian studied the molecular mechanism of bacterial antimonite oxidation and a novel electron transporter of arsenite oxidation, as a postdoctoral researcher. Based on her studies, the arsenite oxidase AioBA was proved to be able to oxidize antimonite, in addition, a novel oxidoreductase AioE was proved to be involved in arsenite oxidation electron transport. She is currently working at Montana State University as a visiting scholar, and focused on the methane oversaturation paradox in Yellowstone Lake.

Presentation Title: "Methylphosphonate metabolism contributes to the methane oversaturation paradox in oxic freshwater lakes" at the weekly CBE seminar in Roberts 321.
