XLD Salmonella Research

The Microbiology and Molecular Genetics faculty are asking fundamental questions in eukaryotic and prokaryotic cell and molecular biology. Our Department applies the methods of microbiology, genetics, biochemistry, bioinformatics, and structural biology to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of the cell. The interdisciplinary nature of these fields means that a prospective graduate student is offered a wide choice of research opportunities. Cross-departmental, interdisciplinary collaborations are facilitated by regular meetings and journal clubs focusing on nucleic acid biochemistry, DNA repair, signal transduction, bacterial pathogenesis, and structural biology and bioinformatics.

Certainly, for a lot of guys, bringing up the problem in the first place is the toughest step.

The research conducted by the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics bears directly on crucial health and environmentally related problems such as cancer, AIDS, microbial pathogenesis, and bioremediation. The research programs within the Department are supported by a variety of sources including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the American Cancer Society, the Department of Energy, and the Environmental Protection Agency. The Department is also the recipient of a 1.8 million dollar award from the Lucille P. Markey Charitable Trust for the establishment of a Center for Molecular Genetics. Investigators have also received funding from private foundations, including the Burroughs Wellcome Foundation and the Pew Charitable Trust.

  • What our students have to say...

    The MMG department is without question one of the best programs offered at UVM. I switched from biochemistry to molecular genetics at the end of my first semester of freshman year and it's the best decision I could have made for my undergraduate career. I feel like the specificity of the MMG program allowed me to really develop my interests and provide me with a direction in my studies that other majors can't provide. The MMG curriculum offers a variety of classes that appeal to a wide range of interests, from molecular cloning to mammalian cell culture to clinical microbiology. Although the classes are challenging, teachers and classmates are always happy to help. The small class sizes have allowed me to build relationships with my teachers and classmates and form life-long friendships. Since we’re such a small major, whenever you meet a fellow MMGer on campus you immediately form a bond! The professors make an effort to get to know you as an individual and they are incredibly supportive and helpful. They'll help you with anything from homework to deciding which classes to take. They will do anything to make sure you succeed. In MMG you'll have the opportunity to explore fascinating aspects of microbiology and molecular genetics and learn valuable skills for success after college. You'll also have a great time doing it! I feel like the knowledge and experience I've gained over the last few years has not only prepared me for a career in science, but sets me above fellow job and graduate school applicants. Being an MMGer has been an incredible experience for me. I'm so grateful to all of the faculty and classmates that have made my 4 years here so wonderful!
