Welcome to the home of the Bose Lab. We are a microbiology lab in the Department of Microbiology, Molecular Genetics and Immunology at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Currently, the entire lab focuses on the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. Specifically, we have three active areas of research: 1) studies understanding how the peptidoglycan (murein) hydrolase AtlA is involved in cell wall physiology and biofilm formation, 2) characterizing the factors contributing to virulence factor production, and 3) the generation of new genetic tools to aid researchers studying S. aureus and other related bacteria. For more information, please click on the "Research" tab above or click below.
