PROJECT TITLE: Generation of mutants: bioinformatics and analysis of bacterial intestinal infections.
Reference: JAEINT23_EX_0144. We study the molecular mechanisms used by pathogenic strains of E. coli to cause infection, focusing on the effector proteins injected through the Type III Secretion System to the infected cells. We will generate mutants of these proteins and analyze their effect on the progression of the infection, using bioinformatic and molecular biology techniques.
DURATION: 7 months
REQUIREMENTS, EXPERIENCE AND ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS:
