Our research seeks to connect the molecular details of intracellular protein kinetics to larger-scale phenomena such as gene expression and mobile genetic element spread. To do so we use techniques such as time-lapse fluorescence microscopy to monitor the population dynamics of conjugative plasmid spread in bacterial populations, and mRNA FISH to observe gene expression at the single-cell level.
