Main interests include, but are not limited to: 1) Investigating microbial community structures and the functional genes for decomposition of plant/animal detritus in the native larval mosquito habitats; 2) Understanding how flavobacteria (such as FlavobacteriumElizabethkingia and Chryseobacterium) impact on mosquito development and health at the molecular level; 3) Studying how flavobacteria interact with parasites and viruses in mosquitoes; and 4) Engineering flavobacteria to produce mosquitocidal toxins, anti-parasite and anti-virus effector proteins. At MMG, we also expand our research to investigate the pathogenesis and multidrug resistance mechanisms in opportunistic bacterial pathogens.
