20.QBIO14 — Santa Barbara Advanced School of Quantitative Biology: 2014 Summer Research Course, Microbial Strategies for Survival and Evolution
 Dates 21 Jul 2014 → 22 Aug 2014
[ID=604160] Go to top of page
 LocationSanta Barbara, United States
 Abstract Microbial life is considerably more complex than is commonly appreciated. Far from merely proliferating exponentially until nutrients are exhausted, microbes engage in a wide range of adaptive behaviors. For example, the diauxie phenomenon associated with the nutrient induced shift of bacterial metabolism was at the heart of Monod and Jacob’s discovery of regulated gene expression. Much like cells in the multicellular organisms, microbes – bacteria and yeast for the purposes of this course – can exist in different phenotypic states. Microbes can switch between different phenotypes and the phenotypic states can persist through cell division thanks to the existence of epigenetic memory. The mechanisms of the epigenetic memory are remarkably diverse, from hysteretic transcriptional regulation circuits to metabolic circuits to DNA methylation and are a subject of much current research, focusing in particular on the role of inductive signals and stochastic fluctuations in switching between states. Interestingly, epigenetic switching coexists with mechanisms of genetic switching via genomic rearrangement (phase variation) or recurrent mutations bridging in a very interesting way the phenotypic dynamics of microbial cells and evolutionary dynamics of microbial colonies. Quantitative exploration of these phenomena will be the central themes of the course.
