Impact of chromosomal integrons on bacterial life and evolution (Chromintevol)
Bacteria exchange and recombine DNA to accelerate their evolution and adapt to new stress. Their evolvability is illustrated by the rapid emergence of multi resistant bacteria after the introduction of antibiotics. The most powerful […]
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 […]
