Jessica Miles of Dilworth IP will be presenting a talk for the 5th Annual Connecticut Symbiosis Meeting on Monday, May 9th at Yale’s West Campus. This annual symposium brings together researchers from Yale University, The University of Connecticut, and Jackson Laboratory who study microbes that live in close association with animals, plants, and other species. The event will highlight work in a number of research areas, including the human microbiome, microbial communities, microbiomes of insects that spread infection, and host-microbe interactions. Julia Oh, of Jackson Laboratory, will deliver this year’s keynote address. In her talk, Jessica will share her recent discovery of genes that are required for Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a common bacteria in the environment and cause of life-threatening infection in hospital settings, to grow in a fly model of infection.
