Pseudomonas aeruginosa PA14 Pathogenesis in Caenorhabditis elegans
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a potentially deadly super bug that is one of the top causes of hospital-acquired infections; it is therefore essential to understand its biology and pathogenesis. This chapter describes methods for using the powerful genetic model organism C. elegans as a host for P. aeruginosa infections so that scientists can safely study the immune response to this fascinating and clinically important bacteria.
