[CANCELED] Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "The Perfect Defense: Bacterial Persister Cell"

Seminar | January 17 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall

 Kim Lewis, Northeastern University

 Department of Plant and Microbial Biology

Our laboratory studies persister cells and uncultured bacteria. Persisters are dormant variants of regular cells which are tolerant to antibiotics and responsible for recalcitrance of biofilm infections. Using transcriptome analysis, cell sorting and whole genome sequencing we are identifying genes responsible for persister formation.
