Type VI secretion systems are molecular machines uses by bacteria to deliver effector proteins directly into other cells or their environments. The Mougous laboratory recently showed that type VI secretion systems are used by some bacteria to target not only eukaryotic cells, but also other bacteria. My work will further characterize these interbacterial interactions in various bacterial species and their role in complex polymicrobial communities.
