Research Focus

Marine nematode-bacterium symbioses and oral cavity symbionts

Questions and Approaches:

How do animal-attached bacteria grow and divide?

- immunostaining and 3D SIM

- ectopic and vitro expression of symbiont cell division and cytoskeletal proteins

How does symbiont cell biology serve symbiont physiology?

- transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics

- stable isotope-based techniques

How does the host immune system respond to the symbiont?

- transcriptomics and proteomics
