Alistair Bonsall

Synthetic Biology Intern

Alistair Bonsall is currently pursuing a PhD in Molecular Microbiology at the University of Dundee, where he investigates the genetic factors that mediate inter-bacterial competition among strains of Bacillus subtilis. He holds an MSci in Molecular Microbiology from the same university, graduating with a first-class honour in 2022.


During his internship at Bactobio, Alistair works with the Synthetic Biology team, focusing on generating heterologous host bacterial strains to express biosynthetic gene clusters of interest.


In his free time, Alistair enjoys staying active by running, swimming, and cycling. He also enjoys a good cup of coffee and pastries.
