Nolan Lab Research

focuses on bacterial diseases of production animals, including their effects on animal health, public health and food safety. The long-term goal of one of our projects is to establish the molecular basis of virulence and antimicrobial resistance of avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC), the causative agent of colibacillosis, an economically devastating problem for the poultry industry. Establishing the molecular basis of APEC virulence and resistance should lead to more rational approaches for future colibacillosis control strategies.

We also host two databases dedicated to the genomic research of E. coli and their plasmids. You can browse through the tools available on the left navigation.
