Abstract

In this study we will characterise the manner in which genes essential for the virulence of Porphyromonas gingivalis, a bacterium associated with chronic periodontitis, are regulated. This will provide information on how this bacterium causes disease and may offer opportunities for the development of new treatment strategies.
