Dr. Minion's research focuses on molecular mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis, pathogenomics, proteomics, gene expression profiling and molecular vaccines. Current projects include the role of biofilms of E. coli O157:H7 in persistence in ruminants; gene expression profiling of microbial pathogens, molecular pathogenesis of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae; and the development of novel vaccines against Yersinia pestis.
