Aims, contents and method of the course

In this course, you will study bacterial stress response pathways at different levels of gene expression. We will focus on current research questions that are ongoing in my group in order to teach advanced techniques required to study the regulation of gene expression mainly at the translational level (e.g.: in vitro transcription and translation, ribosome purification and analysis, toeprinting).
