Bacterial Stress Response


During my postdoctoral research at Rutgers University, I focused on using computational approaches to study various facets of host and pathogen biology including:

  • delineating the molecular mechanism underlying a newly identified stress response operon in the tubercle bacterium involving the phage-shock-proteins (psp);
  • unraveling the evolution of bacterial stress response systems (psp) across the tree of life using protein sequence-structure-function relationships;
  • reconstructing and analyzing the mycobacterial sigma factor regulatory network.
