Envelope biogenesis and spore formation in Bacillus subtilis
The bacterial cell wall exoskeleton (or peptidoglycan) protects cells from osmotic lysis, specifies their shape, and its biosynthetic pathway is a widely-exploited antibiotic target. My thesis research focused on defining ...
Identifying targets for potentiators in S. aureus using chemical genetic approaches
Staphylococcus aureus is a highly feared Gram-positive pathogen. The rise in antibiotic resistance has made S. aureus infections intractable. To find new ways to treat S. aureus infections, it is important to understand ...
