We are interested in chemosensory signal transduction systems that regulate motility and development in the bacterial model organisms, Myxococcus xanthus and Bacillus subtilis. Chemosensory systems are chemotaxis-like two component systems that regulate a variety of cellular functions ranging from flagellar based motility to sporulation.
