The Quantitative Biology program of the Institut Pasteur is intended to facilitate research and education at the interface of biology and the more quantitative sciences. One of the major aims of Quantitative Biology is thus to […]
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). […]
ERC-2015-StG Regulation of cell size and shape in bacteria
Our lab has received an ERC starting grant to investigate cell-size and shape regulation in bacteria. The grant will support our major research topic. See the other projects for more details.
Welcome to the club! Welcome to Microfluidics@Pasteur! Our goal is to serve as the major entry point to all the scientists on the campus (beginners and experts) interested in undertaking projects where microfluidics is involved. Our […]
Regulation of cell volume and single-cell physiology
Bacterial physiology has traditionally been studied on the population level. However, novel single-cell experiments reveal that there is significant cell-to-cell variation in quantities like growth rate, gene expression, intracellular metabolite concentrations, energy levels, etc., […]
