Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "What makes the Lyme disease bacterium tick?"
Seminar | December 6 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall
Christine Jacobs Wagner, Yale University
Our laboratory is part of the Microbial Sciences Institute at the Yale West Campus. Our group studies the temporal and spatial mechanisms involved in bacterial physiology, with emphasis on chromosome dynamics, cell division, cell cycle regulation, cell morphogenesis and RNA biology. Our primary model organisms are Caulobacter crescentus, Escherichia coli and the Lyme disease pathogen Borrelia burgdorferi.
