Graduate students Avery Robinson and Jacob Wilde contributed to a book chapter with Emma Allen-Vercoe that covers many aspects of Fusobacteria biology. Entitled “Fusobacteria: Physiology, Form and Function” it is published in “Colorectal neoplasia and the colorectal microbiome. Dysplasia, probiotics and Fusobacteria”, edited by Martin H. Floch and published by Elsevier. ISBN: 978-0-12-819672-4. In this chapter, the authors sought to distill all of the information as-yet known about fusobacterial physiology, with a particular focus on F. nucleatum, including phylogeny, metabolism, virulence determinants, genomics, plasmids and phages.
Dr. Caroline Young from Dr. Phil Quirke’s lab in Leeds gave the CL Oakley Lecture for the Pathological Society of Great Britain and Ireland and was awarded the Oakley lecture medal.
