Birgit Pruess, associate professor of veterinary and microbiological sciences, was part of a conference committee that was charged with writing the review article for the international meeting of Bacterial Locomotion and Signal Transduction, known as BLAST, held in Arizona in January.
Pruess was a co-author of "Lessons in Fundamental Mechanisms and Diverse Adaptations from the 2015 Bacterial Locomotion and Signal Transduction Meeting" published in the American Society for Microbiology's Journal of Bacteriology.
The BLAST group originated in 1991 and was tightly focused on bacterial chemotaxis. It has since evolved into a platform where researchers from all disciplines discuss topics such as molecular engines, protein folding, signal transduction, systems biology, biodiversity, niche adaptation and pathogenicity.
