Research

STUDY SYSTEMS: Marine nematode-bacterium symbioses, oral cavity symbionts

 

QUESTIONS AND APPROACHES:

- How do animal-attached bacteria grow and divide?

  (immunostaining/3D SIM, ectopic and vitro expression of symbiont cell division and cytoskeletal proteins)

- How does symbiont cell biology serves symbiont physiology?  

  (transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, stable isotope-based techniques)

- How does the host immune system respond to the symbiont?

  (transcriptomics, proteomics)
