Mo Kaze


Microbiologist 🦠🔬

Dr. Mo Kaze is a microbial ecologist interested in genetic movement in various environments. She specializes in metagenomics, bioinformatics, and environmental microbiology.Her masters work for NASA involved looking for new lineages of life by investigating microbial communities of geothermal acid pools in Yellowstone National Park. Her doctoral research investigated genetic movement across environmental gradients with a focus the mobile genetic elements of biopesticides. Her research as a fellow at the Joint Genome Institute maps the biogeographical distribution of organisms and defining their functional potential of engineered transitional systems, such as aqueducts and networks of irrigation canals. She is currently a postdoc at UC Davis working on computational analysis of SARSCov2 in enviromental systems and wastewater epidmiology. She often gives talks on her non-traditional road to becoming a scientist.
