Theodore Muth is an associate professor in the Biology Department. Muth received his Ph.D. in cell biology from the Yale University School of Medicine in 1998, where he studied protein targeting in epithelial and neuronal cells in the lab of Dr. Michael Caplan. Muth went on to receive postdoctoral training at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem studying bacterial multidrug resistance transporters, and a second postdoc at the University of California, Berkeley, studying DNA transfer by the plant pathogen, A. tumefaciens. Muth's lab at Brooklyn College studies the unique ability of A. tumefaciens bacteria to transfer DNA into host plant cells. His lab also investigates the diversity and dynamics of urban microbial communities using metagenomic approaches coupled with next generation DNA sequencing.
