    Staph aureus CRISPRi CozE preprint now published!

    June 10 2018

    Morten's team (with a small contribution by us) established a very robust CRISPRi system for Staphylococcus aureus and then using that to show that staph has not 1 but 2 CozE-like proteins. The work shows that CozE proteins mediate control of cell division in S. aureus and S. pneumoniae, likely via interactions with key cell division proteins such as EzrA.The work is now online at Molecular Microbiology (preprinted at BioRxiv first).

    We are hiring!
