Cheryl A. Whistler, University of New Hampshire Microbiology Department

This University of New Hampshire faculty page features a summary of Dr. CA Whistler's current research. Using the symbiosis of the bioluminescent bacterium, Vibrio fischeri, with its animal host, the squid Euprymna scolopes, as a model system, her research seeks to elucidate how bacteria initiate and maintain long-term associations and how hosts recognize and respond to their desired symbiotic partner. The page includes a summary of her research and a list of publications.
