Abstract

Bacteria can reprogram host gene expression during infection, often through epigenomic mechanisms. However, the lasting impact of such effects remains understudied. This forum discusses examples suggesting that bacterial infection can result in long-lasting memory encoded in epigenomic mechanisms and speculates on the potential of others.
