This journal club explores recently published primary research articles that investigate the molecular mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis. We cover all microbial pathogens including viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoan parasites, and helminths. We also cover pathogens that infect any hosts, including human, animals, and plants. Course content consists of asynchronous reading of primary literature and coming together as a group to discuss synchronously. Each week, a student volunteer will choose an article, introduce the background of the study, and lead discussion.
