Post-genomics: whole genome collections, transcriptomics and proteomics
Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
Exploitation of budding yeast genetics to elucidate the function and molecular mechanisms of bacterial virulence factors, with emphasis in those that interfere with cell signaling, cytoskeleton or vesicular traffic.
