Workshop: Bacterial RNAseq
We propose a skills training for PhD students on Bacterial RNAseq experiments Using total RNAs, we will i) enrich the mRNAs by depleting the rRNAs ; ii) prepare and sequence cDNA library and iii) analyse […]
LabEx IBEID – Integrative Biology of Emerging Infectious Diseases
Presentation The aim of the Integrative Biology of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IBEID) project, coordinated by Professors Philippe Sansonetti and Pascale Cossart, is to develop a structure to anticipate and tackle emerging infectious diseases (EIDs). […]
Biology of anaerobic biofilm formed by Clostridium difficile and their role in infections
Biofilms are universal traits of bacteria defined as mixed species communities characterized by high cell density, reduced diffusion and heterogeneous structures. These characteristics induce behaviors and phenotype that are not observed in planktonic microorganisms […]
The regulatory network of sporulation and spore morphogenesis in Clostridium difficile
Clostridium difficile, a Gram-positive, anaerobic, spore-forming bacterium, is a major cause of nosocomial infections such as antibiotic-associated diarrhea. Spores are the vector of its transmission and persistence in the environment. Despite the importance of […]
Control of toxin synthesis and secretion in Clostridium difficile
The variable spectrum of diseases caused by C. difficile (CD) is correlated for the severe forms to the level of toxins produced during host infection. This strengthened the idea that regulation of toxin synthesis […]
Pathogenomic analysis of high potential virulent strains of C. difficile
Clostridium difficile is increasingly associated with infections in hospitals and in the community, and hypervirulent types are emerging. Six research groups from 5 countries undertook this project, aiming to use genomic approaches to study […]
Biofilms formed by anaerobes
Although many clinically and ecologically relevant processes are known to be performed by biofilm communities composed of strict or facultative anaerobic bacteria, biofilms were often studied in aerobic conditions. We use in vitro anaerobic culture systems […]
Prophage elements as a significant source of genetic diversity among epidemic C. difficile 027 strains
The capacity to rapidly and accurately identify virulent strains of C. difficile in order to prevent severe and fatal infections remains a major chal- lenge for clinicians and investigators. Also, the evolution of an […]
COV2HTML is an interactive web interface, which is addressed to biologists, and allows performing both coverage visualization and analysis of NGS alignments performed on prokaryotic organisms (bacteria and phages). It combines two processes: a […]
