Trey Scott



Trey received his BA from Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa. During a summer at the University of Georgia, he worked with fluorescent labeling molecules to understand peptidoglycan dynamics in Myxococcus xanthus. At Simpson, Trey used directed mutagenesis to examine the active site of NylC, an enzyme that degrades nylon. Trey is interested in working with Dictyostelium and its symbionts to study cooperation and conflict.
