Bacteria use sophisticated molecular machineries to interact with other cells and take up nutrients. One such machinery is the type VI secretion system (T6SS). It is found in a variety of Gram-negative bacteria including the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Despite a remarkable understanding of the T6SS structure and molecular biology in P. aeruginosa reference strains, less is known about its biodiversity and role during disease. We combine genomics with wet-lab experiments to better understand how and why P. aeruginosa bacteria use their T6SS.
