The Rego Lab uses a variety of techniques to investigate how individual bacteria create and maintain non-genetic sources of variability. This is an important survival mechanism for many bacteria and appears especially important for the pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis. We use advanced imaging technologies, including super-resolution microscopy, fluorescent biosensors, high-throughput genetics, and traditional molecular biology to study mycobacterial heterogeneity on a single-cell level.
