Beth received her Ph.D. in Biology in 2003 from Kobe University in Japan where she trained in yeast and bacterial genetics at the laboratory of Dr. Katsumi Isono. For her thesis research, she developed genome-wide approaches to identify and characterize Escherichia coli genes involved in biofilm formation. Beth has since held faculty positions at the Philippine Normal University and Ateneo de Manila University, and post-doctoral positions at the University of California-Los Angeles and Tufts Medical Center. Dr. Tenorio’s research interests include the use of genetic and genomic techniques in studying interspecies interactions between oral anaerobic bacteria as well as characterizing the host cell- response to dental pathogens. As OGL’s new Biological Collections Data Specialist, she is developing the Ocean Genome Resource’s PMS-ICBG project database.
