Her primary areas of investigation include Euprymna scolopes, Vibrio, Ecology, Microbiology and Light organ. Her study in Euprymna scolopes is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Zoology, Morphogenesis, Leucine, Sepiolidae and Aliivibrio fischeri. Her research investigates the connection between Vibrio and topics such as Symbiosis that intersect with problems in Colonization and Mutualism.
Her Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Animal development and Biological evolution. Her studies examine the connections between Microbiology and genetics, as well as such issues in Peptidoglycan, with regards to Microbial pathogenesis, Human pathogen and Bacterial cell structure. Her Light organ research is included under the broader classification of Bacteria.
Euprymna scolopes, Light organ, Vibrio, Microbiology and Symbiosis are her primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Host, Morphogenesis, Aliivibrio fischeri and Cell biology in addition to Euprymna scolopes. Her Light organ research focuses on Anatomy and how it connects with Photophore.
Her Vibrio research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Bacterial outer membrane and Squid. She combines subjects such as Mucus, Mutant, Innate immune system, Immune system and Peptidoglycan with her study of Microbiology. Margaret J. McFall-Ngai interconnects Mutualism, Ecology, Colonization and Transcriptome in the investigation of issues within Symbiosis.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Euprymna scolopes, Light organ, Cell biology, Host and Symbiosis. Her Euprymna scolopes research is under the purview of Vibrio. Her studies deal with areas such as Symbiotic bacteria, Genome, Intracellular and Antimicrobial peptides as well as Vibrio.
Her research in Light organ focuses on subjects like Morphogenesis, which are connected to Developmental biology, Cell polarity, Anatomy, Photophore and Ultrastructure. Her Cell biology research integrates issues from Proteases, Cathepsin, Cathepsin L, Cysteine protease and Apoptosis. Her Symbiosis research includes elements of Evolutionary biology, Colonization and Bioluminescence.
Margaret J. McFall-Ngai focuses on Host, Symbiosis, Evolutionary biology, Vibrio and Light organ. Her Host study is concerned with Genetics in general. Her research integrates issues of Model organism and Holobiont in her study of Evolutionary biology.
Her Vibrio research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Biofilm, Phenotype, Vibrionaceae and Bioluminescence. The various areas that Margaret J. McFall-Ngai examines in her Light organ study include Symbiotic bacteria, Antimicrobial peptides, Euprymna scolopes and Intracellular, Cell biology. Euprymna scolopes is a subfield of Gene that she investigates.
