Research led by Joseph Mougous, assistant professor of microbiology at the University of Washington in Seattle, provides new insight into how the disease-causing bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa acts as a master colonizer and maintains a competitive advantage over other bacteria. Alistair Russell, NSF Graduate Research Fellow in the Mougous lab, discusses this research and describes how it helps our understanding of Pseudomonas as well as other pathogenic bacteria.
