Endospore formation in gram-positive bacteria

David Popham’s group works on the formation, structure, and germination of endospores by the Gram-positive genera Bacillus and Clostridium. Potential applications of this research are in antibiotic design, in spore killing for decontamination, and in activation of spore germination in industrial processes.
