Pseudomonas Aeruginosa - the Molecular Tools of a Bacterial Survivor

The bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa can thrive in environments as different as the moist, warm tissue in our lungs, and the dry, nutrient-deprived surface of an office wall. Such adaptability makes it problematic in healthcare - where it causes infections in cases of cystic fibrosis, cancer, HIV, and other immune-compromised conditions - but also makes it a fascinating subject for study.
