Julie's recent work published in PLoS Genetics

In collaboration with the Brinsmade Lab at Georgetown University, the Murphy Lab at the University of British Columbia, and the Edgell Lab at Western University, our paper describes the mechanisms regulating branched-chain amino acid synthesis in Staphylococcus aureus. The study describes the nutritional cues that regulate whether S. aureus acquires BCAAs or synthesizes them itself.
