Lipids and cyclic nucleotides-mediated regulation of lytic cycle in Toxoplasma gondii.


The project aims is to illuminate the lipid and cyclic nucleotides-regulated signaling and its impact on the pathogenesis, persistence and adaptation of the intracellular pathogen Toxoplasma gondii. The work will help us fathom the network design principle in this clinically-relevant parasite with respect to its mammalian host cells, which is vital to find specific diagnostic and intervention strategies. The underlying research blends the bottom-up methods of advanced genome engineering, cell biology and biochemistry with multi-omics (transcriptomics, phosphoproteomics), bioinformatics and optogenetics. If and as necessary, we will develop and adopt new tools to advance the work.
