Waterborne Infectious Diseases MOOC
This MOOC explains why water can transmit bacterial, viral and parasitic infections and explores means of control and prevention. Register on: https://www.fun-mooc.fr/en/cours/water-borne-infectious-diseases/ Flyer : MOOC_WBID_2022 developing countries, do not have access to safe drinking […]
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). […]
The SARA project: Surveillance of Antibiotic Resistance in Africa, an integrative project of the Pasteur Network
Antibiotic resistance is one of the most serious threats to global health. The consequences for human health are particularly severe in low-resource countries, and in Africa in particular. The SARA project is funded by […]
Evolutionary history of the classical biotype of Vibrio cholerae O1
The classical biotype of Vibrio cholerae O1 was responsible for the first six cholera pandemics, but is relatively unknown, with only 20 genome sequences (50% of which come from the same geographic area) for […]
Genomic insights into the 2016-2017 cholera epidemic in Yemen
Cholera is thought by many to be a disease of the Victorian era. However, Yemen has recently experienced one of the largest ever cholera epidemics. The first cases were declared in September 2016, and […]
Historical antibiotic-resistant populations of S. enterica serotype Typhimurium
Little is known about the emergence and spread of the first antibiotic-resistant populations. It is believed, for example, that the very common penicillinase gene, blaTEM-1, discovered for the first time in E. coli in Greece […]
Phylodynamics of Vibrio cholerae O1 in Africa (1970-2014)
In 1970, ten years after the beginning of the 7th pandemic (Indonesia, 1961), cholera hit Africa, where it has remained entrenched. Three decades later, the reported incidence of indigenous cholera in sub-Saharan Africa was […]
Phylogenomics of Shiga’s epidemic dysentery bacillus (Shigella dysenteriae type 1)
The agent of epidemic dysentery, the bacterium Shigella dysenteriae type 1, was isolated in Japan in 1897 by Dr Kyoshi Shiga during a massive epidemic of bloody diarrhea that caused 20,000 deaths over a […]
The Unit includes two National Reference Centers (CNR) and a WHO Collaborating Center. Our interests are the population dynamics of bacterial enteric pathogens such Salmonella, Shigella/Escherichia coli and Vibrio, with a special focus on […]
