[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
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.
