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.

  • What our students have to say...

    Working for a Bachelor's of Science in the MMG department is very challenging and I'm glad I took that challenge. There were plenty of other programs I could have gone through that would have been far easier to complete but college should not be about taking the easy path. My experience with MMG challenged me far more than I had expected it would. It forced me to become a better student and strengthened myself discipline and determination. I don't think I would be as strong willed as I am today had I perused an easier degree. The MMG department is also one of the most dedicated departments I've ever worked with. They put a lot of emphasis on preparing their students for their careers and provide great advising throughout the college experience. All the professors I've worked with in the department have been very down to earth and helpful. Wherever I go after collage, I'm glad I choose the MMG department.
