Abstract: The human microbiome is a complex assembly of bacteria that are sensitive to many perturbations. We have developed specific tools for studying the vaginal, intestinal and oral microbiomes under many using time course data following many different types of perturbations (pregnancy, hypo-salivation inducing medications and antibiotics are some examples).

During entry, most DNA viruses must navigate the crowded cellular environment to reach the nucleus where transcription and replication of the viral genome occur. How polyomavirus (PyV), a small, DNA tumor virus, accomplishes this essential step in infection is unclear. In mammalian cells, intracellular transport is facilitated largely by two host motors, kinesin and cytoplasmic dynein, which move cargo along microtubules towards the periphery and center of the cell, respectively.

For women in the United States, urinary tract infections (UTI) are the most frequent diagnosis in emergency departments, comprising 21.3% of total visits. The overwhelming majority of uncomplicated cases are caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC). Recent studies show that UPEC exhibit an extraordinarily rapid in vivo growth rate with an average doubling time of 22.4 minutes in patients.
