Seminar: "Unraveling post-transcriptional regulatory networks governing rapid adaptive responses in (pathogenic) microorganisms" (Lecture)

from 12:00

Sander GrannemanWork in my lab is focusing on understanding how microorganisms manage to rapidly adapt to sudden changes in their environment. Many pathogenic species have developed very sophisticated mechanisms to efficiently scavenge essential nutrients from the host environment and even evade the host immune system. Our research is focused on post-transcriptional regulation by small non-coding RNAs and RNA-binding proteins, using Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus as a model system. Key Publications
