I'm not sure what you mean by finding the optimal factors for both phases.
Clinical labs have long had a way to get the organisms to exhibit
each phase, so what are you getting at?
Let's here some more about this, but keep in mind that there are thousands
(40-60000) of publications on salmonellae. Be sure you do your literature
homework before deciding on a thesis and be sure that what you decide
you want to do CAN BE DONE in the laboratory where you are learning and
that it can be DONE IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME.
There is no point to taking 4 years (or 3 years) to get a masters degree.
