Evolution and population biology of bacterial pathogens. Lack of knowledge on the dynamics of pathogenic bacteria population structure and the forces shaping it motivates our research in this area. We are interested in the role of chromosome plasticity in bacterial adaptation, with a special emphasis in gene exchange and mobile genetic elements. Current efforts in the characterization of the bacteriophage (phage) population of. The lab in the IMM site. Last modified: 2014/09/22 16:36 by.
