Measuring Gene Expression and Growth Rate during Bacterial Infection in Humans


Harry L.T. Mobley, PhD

ASM Distinguished Lecturer

Department of Microbiology and Immunology

University of Michigan Medical School

Dr. Mobley runs a cutting edge bacterial pathogenesis lab investigating metabolic pathway and transport system activity, and more importantly which genes are actually expressed, during human infection. Novel techniques including RNA-Seq and Tn-Seq allow them to identify the most highly expressed and the most essential genes during actual infections in order to understand how bacterial pathogens evade our immune defenses.
