The Kingsley lab studies the variation in genotype and phenotype of food-borne bacterial pathogens and their host.

Variation data is used to study the molecular epidemiology of infection and to generate testable hypotheses aimed at understanding the molecular basis of the host-pathogen interaction. With a principal interest in the foodborne pathogen Salmonella enterica, the Kingsley lab combines genomic data, transcriptomic data and other ‘omics data to generate hypotheses that are then tested using classical molecular biology and models of infection.

The long-term aim of this research is to identify targets for novel intervention strategies aimed at decreasing the burden of food-borne disease.
