COMSTECH Webinar on “Escherichia coli as a Model Organism”
Prof. Dr. Ute Römling
Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden
Date and Time: November 11, 2021 from 15:00-17:00 (Pakistan Standard Time)
The bacterium Escherichia coli is one of the most well-investigated bacteria due to its occurrence in almost every human, along with being one of the major pathogens for humans. However, little is known about E. coli as a commensal, despite the fact that E. coli K-12 is a laboratory model organism. In this Webinar, Prof. Römling will analyze her research finding of a recent E. coli K-12 clonal member in post-industrial human beings.
The webinar is open to students, researchers, young scientists, and academicians from the OIC member states and other countries.
