This project utilizes state-of-the-art genomic methods to identify genes that enable multidrug resistant bacteria, including Staphylococcus and Enterococcus, to infect or survive treatment. Genes identified are then tested using microarrays or other approaches to identify gene networks and to define precisely what the product of that gene contributes to infection or resistance. This knowledge is then used to design new therapeutic approaches, or to aid in the search for new antimicrobials.
