Omics4TB TFOE Expression Experiments

by patricwpadmin

Mycobacterium tuberculosis senses and responds to the shifting and hostile landscape of the host. To characterize the underlying intertwined gene regulatory network governed by approximately 200 transcription factors of M. tuberculosis, we have assayed the global transcriptional consequences of overexpressing each transcription factor from an inducible promoter. We cloned and overexpressed 206 transcription factors in […]

Resources for Genetic and Genomic Analysis of Emerging Pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii Publication: PMC4438207 Acinetobacter baumannii is a Gram-negative bacterial pathogen notorious for causing serious nosocomial infections that resist antibiotic therapy. Research to identify factors responsible for the pathogen’s success has been limited by the resources available for genome-scale experimental studies. This report describes the development […]

Peptidoglycan synthesis in Mycobacterium tuberculosis is organized into networks with varying drug susceptibility Publication: PMCID: PMC4620856 Peptidoglycan (PG), a complex polymer composed of saccharide chains crosslinked by short peptides, is a critical component of the bacterial cell wall. PG synthesis has been extensively studied in model organisms but remains poorly understood in mycobacteria, a genus that […]
