Engineering Red-Light Activated Guanylate Cyclase
Host-pathogen studies are the method through which knowledge concerning how pathogens interact with their hosts is obtained. Currently many of these studies are performed by knocking-out genes in pathogens and then infecting mice with the genetically modified pathogen. This method of knocking-out genes is very imprecise though, as it is difficult to control the temporal aspects of infection such as toxin production during specific stages of infection. My project aims to produce a new and more effective method for studying how pathogens interact with hosts via creating a near infrared (NIR) ...
