TB & Lipid metabolism


In addition to stress-response systems on the pathogenic side, I studied some host responses to M. tuberculosis infection using computational approaches as well:

  • characterizing the transcriptional response in infected macrophages under various small molecule perturbations using RNA-Seq analysis;
  • understanding the dysregulation of lipid metabolism in M. tuberculosis-infected macrophages using dynamic Bayesian model and statistical analyses of heterogeneous single-cell populations.
