Erel Levine, Harvard, How to worm infection dynamics out of worms?
Bacterial infection is characterized by a multi-scale noisy dynamics with unpredictable outcome. In my talk I introduce bacterial infection of the worm intestine as a minimal tractable model of bacterial infection. I discuss how this model could be used to address key questions in the field, and suggest experimental and theoretical approaches to study it.
