Proteomics of epidemic B. pertussis

The resurgence of pertussis has been partly attributed to the adaptation of B. pertussis, but little is known of the proteomic changes of the epidemic B. pertussis strains. The aim of this project is to elucidate key changes at the proteomic levels that may have contributed to the adaptation of the epidemic strains circulating in Australia. The project involves western blot, proteomics and bioinformatics analysis.
