Bowel cancer is common and is defined by changes to our genetic material (DNA). In this project we will answer whether bacteria that naturally live in the bowel can be coerced to take up cancer DNA through cutting-edge synthetic design; and whether bacteria could, in the future, detect and then react to bowel polyps and cancer and thus facilitate the detection, prevention and treatment of bowel cancer.
