The Expanding Molecular Genetics Tool Kit in Chlamydia.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Chlamydia has emerged as an important model system for the study of host pathogen interactions, in part due to a resurgence in the development of tools for its molecular genetic manipulation. An additional tool, published by Keb et al. (G. Keb, R. Hayman, and K. A. Fields, J. Bacteriol. 200:e00479-18, 2018,, now allows for custom genetic engineering of genomic regions that were traditionally recalcitrant to genetic manipulation, such as genes within operons. This new method will be an essential instrument for the elucidation of Chlamydia-host interactions.
