Study of the stringent response in the regulation of virulence factors in Brucella melitensis 16M

Project: PHD

Project Details


The involvement of Rsh (also named RelA or SpoT) is approached by the characterisation of a rsh mutant in B. melitensis 16M. The phenotyypic analysis is concentrated on the transcription of particular virulence genes.
