Monica is a 4th year Biochemistry student who is investigating the function of genes that are co-regulated with PilA, the major subunit of type IV pili, by the PilRS two-component regulatory system. Such genes may be unregulated in response to surface contact and include those that encode components of the type VI secretion system as well as genes of unknown function.
