Kelley Gallagher

The Gallagher lab studies the regulation of steps in the bacterial life cycle through sporulation in the soil-dwelling genus Streptomyces. Students will delete and overexpress genes that are predicted to regulate development and examine resulting phenotypes to identify novel regulatory mechanisms of bacterial development. This work will build student skills in molecular genetics.
