Credentials: Listeria monocytogenes is a gram-positive, intracellular pathogen which has evolved to make the host cytosol its replicative niche. Utilizing a forward genetic screen with L. monocytogenes bacteriolysis mutants, it will be possible to elucidate the underlying mechanisms within the host cell which act to clear invading pathogens.
