Research in the Alexandre laboratory aims at gaining a greater understanding of the strategies used by diverse bacteria to sense and respond to changes in the environments. Using bacteria chemotaxis signal transduction in soil bacteria as a model system, research conducted in the laboratory seeks to elucidate how sensory information is processed by chemotaxis-like signal transduction pathways, how multiple cellular responses may be controlled by a single pathway as well as how the activity ofparallel chemotaxis signal transduction pathways is coordinated to generate an integrated adaptive response. The laboratory uses microbial genetics, biochemistry as well as a suite of "omics" approaches to address such questions.
