Research Summary

Jue Wang is studying the conflicts between the replication and transcription machineries in bacteria, which are exacerbated by stresses such as nutrient deprivation or exposure to antibiotics. She is characterizing how such conflicts have shaped the evolution of microbial genomes, and how conflicts are avoided by coordinating cellular metabolism in response to stress.
