Method for Modeling Metabolic Host-Pathogen Interactions

Institution: University of California, San Diego

Summary
Brief description unavailable

Description
UC San Diego researchers have developed a method to integrate and simulate the interaction between two different cell types, specifically for an intracellular pathogen and a host cell. Relevant applications of this technology span the analysis of data generated from in vivo infectious data to in vitro co-culture systems, with potential applications including the identification of cell/tissue specific antibiotic targets and optimizing media conditions for growth of co-culture systems.
