Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria. Read more

How do evolutionary changes in innate immune genes influence the carriage of zoonotic pathogens

Zoonotic pathogens, such as COVID-19, reside in animal hosts before jumping species to infect humans. How diversity in host immune genes across species impact upon pathogen carriage are poorly understood. Read more

Expanding phylogenetic reconstruction in bacteria

Bacterial phylogenies are generally built using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), as their behaviour is well-studied, and they usually produce robust phylogenetic trees. Read more

Mutational signatures in bacteria

Different mutational processes leave signatures in the variants generated over time in bacterial genomes. These processes can include chemical or environmental mutagens, as well as intrinsic metabolic processes and DNA repair pathways. Read more

International PhD Programme 2022

Would you like to contribute your creativity to an. international team of scientists from all disciplines. focusing on basic research in the molecular sciences?. Read more

Genome-wide translational responses to stress

We are interested in gene regulation in responses to stress, using both simple model organisms, human and plant pathogens. Cells respond to stress conditions by launching complex programs of gene expression, both transcriptional and posttranscriptional, and which are often closely linked with each other. Read more
