Pseudomonas aeruginosa forms chronic infections in the lungs of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, and is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in patients with CF. Understanding how this opportunistic pathogen adapts to the CF lung during chronic infections is important to increase the efficacy of treatment and is likely to increase insight into other long-term infections. Previous studies of P. aeruginosa adaptation and divergence in CF infections have focused on the genetic level, both… CONTINUE READING
