Daouda Traore (aka LeBounty) is a Biochemist, Structural Biologist.
Dr Traore’s research focuses on understanding the molecular basis for horizontal gene transfer: a process used by micro-organism to share part of their genetic material. This mechanism is one of the major contributor in the emergence of multi-drug resistant bacteria.
His pseudo LeBounty (from the chocolate bar: Black outside/white inside) is often given to African expatriates. Although Daouda believes he only sees things from a different perspective.
The aim of this blog is to practice and improve his writing skills by sharing his thoughts on the science he does and other things.
