2018 ASM Florida Branch Meeting


This meeting of the Florida Branch of ASM will take place from October 19-21, 2018 at at the Floridays Resort in Orlando, FL.

 

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Harry L.T. Mobley, Ph.D.


Department of Microbiology and Immunology
University of Michigan Medical School

 

The title of the seminar will be:
Bacterial Gene Expression and Growth Rates during Human Infection

Description:
Our traditional definition of bacterial virulence has been based on in vitro measurements of adherence, iron acquisition, toxin activity, protein secretion, and motility. Now we must consider what metabolic pathways are in play, what transport systems must be active, and, most importantly, which genes are actually being expressed during human infection. Novel techniques including RNA-Seq and Tn-Seq allow us to identify the most highly expressed genes and which genes are essential during actual infections. This leads to a better understanding of how bacterial pathogens outfox our immune defenses.
