  1. Bacterial cell wall synthesis, shape and septation
    Kevin D Young; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..This project will approach this goal by discovering ways in which proteins interact to synthesize the cell wall and by creating new tools for visualizing its molecular composition. ..
  2. Bacterial cell wall synthesis, shape and septation
    Kevin Young; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..This project will approach this goal by discovering ways in which proteins interact to synthesize the cell wall and by creating new tools for visualizing its molecular composition. ..
  3. Bacterial cell wall synthesis, shape and septation
    Kevin Young; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..These goals will be realized by creating strains deficient in portions of the proposed pathway, by assaying current FtsZ mutants and creating new ones, and by isolating suppressor mutants to define additional components of the pathway. ..
  4. COMPLEX PHENOTYPES OF MUTIPLE MUTANTS OF E COLI
    Kevin Young; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..And third, the compilation of extensive and defined datasets will allow us to develop appropriate tools to investigate complex relations between genotype and phenotype. ..
