Molecular mechanisms of bacterial stress adaptation and interspecies interaction

Welcome to Dong Lab!

Our research group is interested in the molecular adaptation mechanisms by which bacteria survive in stress environment and interact with competing species.  Bacteria have developed complex regulatory networks that control gene expression to respond to different environmental stimuli from the host and the environment. We use cutting-edge genomic tools such as Tn-seq, ChIP-seq, and RNA-seq to characterize key regulators and cognate targets that are important for adaptation under specific environment.
