Preprint with Sears Lab on B. fragillis toxin epigenetic effects on HT-29 cells
Our preprint describing our work with the Sears lab on BFT (B. fragillis toxin) on HT-29 cells and the effect on the transcriptome and epigenome (chromatin accessibility is out. Find it here: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2018/04/18/301374.
Our Recent Papers with Simner Lab
Our paper with the Simner lab in JAC is out “Antibiotic pressure on the acquisition and loss of antibiotic resistance genes in Klebsiella pneumoniae”. It’s a case study of a single patient who had two different K. pneumo strains in them, one HMV and one XDR. Using nanopore and illumina sequencing for genome assemblies. PDF
Our *other* paper with the Simner lab and Dr. Tamma on a Burkholderia cepacia case study is also out in AAC: Pubmed.
