Identification of regulatory small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs) from bacteria of the Burkholdeira cepacia complex (Bcc). Regulation of gene expression in Bcc bacteria by small non-coding RNAs, focusing on genes involved in virulence and stress resistance. Molecular mechanisms used by sRNAs to modulate gene expression.
