- Friday Lecture Series
Carol A. Gross, Ph.D., professor, department of cell and tissue biology, University of California, San Francisco
Dr. Gross and her lab have used mutual information and phylogenetic footprinting to examine the transcriptional output of the most abundant sigma subfamily across the bacterial kingdom and standard and novel iterations of CRISPR interference technology to dissect the essential gene networks in both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. She will discuss the lab's findings during this lecture.
