A link between antibiotic resistance and bacterial sporulation

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

This proposal involves investigating PBPs that are involved in C. difficile spore production because spores are critical for disease transmission and environmental contamination by this bacterium. Furthermore, antibiotic use and resistance play important roles in the C. difficile disease cycle, and the role of spore-specific PBPs in this context is not known.
