The focus on antibiotic resistance in bacteria as a result of exposure to lethal doses of antibiotics is shifting. This is due to the increasing amount of evidence supporting a role for sublethal concentrations in its development and evolution. I am currently interested in applying different high throughput approaches to find genes/non-codings sequences that are involved in the response to sub-minimal inhibitory concentrations (sub-MICs). Characterization of the response to sub-MICs of antibiotics in different Gammaproteobacteria will advance our understanding of bacterial stress and the development of adaptation and resistance.
