There is a strong emphasis on the roles of nucleoid-­‐associated proteins, especially H-­‐NS and Fis, in these processes. We use whole-­‐genome and individual-­‐gene methods to discover the principles that govern nucleoid organisation and gene expression control. We also study the regulatory mechanisms that evolve following acquisition by a bacterium of new genes through horizontal gene transfer. Above: detection of H-­‐NS protein binding to the entire chromosome of Salmonella by chromatin immuno-­‐
precipitation. The highest peaks correspond to horizontally-­‐
acquired genes. Left: The H-­‐NS-­‐like protein encoded by the horizontally-­‐acquitred sfh gene binds to an extended sequence with structural similaries to those preferred by H-­‐
NS itself and the Fis protein (see SC Dillon ADS Cameron CJ Dorman. 2010. Mol Microbiol 76:1250-­‐1265). Right: H-­‐NS TCD
binds and silences the A+T-­‐rich gfp gene but not the re-­‐engineered gfp gene with reduced A+T content (Corcoran CP, ADS Cameron, CJ Dorman. 2010. J Bacteriol 192: 4790-­‐4793).
