  • Abstract : Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection in the U.S. While genital chlamydia infection can beget devastating pathologies, it is unclear why some women are more likely to develop severe infections but others are asymptomatic or remain uninfected after exposure to C. trachomatics. We use mice as a model organism, seek to evaluate the potential impact of the time of day of pathogen exposure on the genital tract microbiome in chlamydia infection.
