Current Projects

Measures and Models of T7 Gene Expression

Research Goals

The goal of my work is to quantitatively measure absolute levels of individual bacteriophage T7 mRNA during the course of infection. For this, I have adapted real-time SYBR Green RT-PCR methods in order to measure small regions of 26 transcripts on a copy number per cell level. These measurements support concurrent efforts in our lab to realistically model T7 gene expression.
