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 misuse of antimicrobials in humans and animals accelerates this process, and the consequences for human health are particularly severe in low-resource […]
Microbial Resource Research Infrastructure (MIRRI-ERIC)
The Microbial Resource Research Infrastructure (MIRRI) is the pan-European distributed Research Infrastructure for the preservation, systematic investigation, provision and valorisation of microbial resources and biodiversity. It currently brings together 50+ microbial domain Biological Resource […]
Rapid diagnostic test of diphtheria
Although the crucial role of diphtheria toxin in severe diphtheria symptoms was discovered more than 100 years ago by Yersin and Roux, a reliable, specific, accurate, affordable and simple method for the detection of […]
Oxford Nanopore sequencing for detection and surveillance of pathogens
This project intends to share expertise, developments, equipement and bioinformatics tools to apply Oxford Nanopore Technology sequencing to the detection, diagnostic and characterization of pathogens of public health importance. It corresponds to a collaboration […]
KlebNet: a One Health network bridging science and surveillance on antimicrobial resistant Klebsiella
Join us on Google groups! KlebNET e-mail distribution list on Google groups. Please ask for registration, by explaining your interest in Klebsiella research or surveillance and providing your institution, so that the moderators can […]
MedVetKlebs: Klebsiella pneumoniae from ecology to source attribution and transmission control
Klebsiella pneumoniae (hereafter, K. pneumoniae) is a major cause of hospital-acquired infections such as urinary infections, pneumonia, bloodstream infections, infections in newborns and in intensive-care unit patients. Some hypervirulent strains also cause community infections […]
SPARK: Transmission of multidrug resistant Klebsiella clones and genes – a One Health approach
The SPARK (Spread of Population-wide Antibiotic Resistance in Klebsiella) project, funded by the JPIAMR instrument of the European Union H2020 programme, seeks to address the complex issue of transmission of antimicrobial resistance genes and […]
Bordetella and whooping cough: Population Biology and Vaccination
Our research on Bordetella covers the population biology and epidemiology of various Bordetella species, including B. pertussis, the major agent of whooping cough; vaccine improvements; and the impact of vaccination on population evolution. Current […]
Diphtheria and Corynebacteria: genomics, evolution and epidemiology
Our research on Corynebacterium diphtheriae and related bacterial pathogenic species, including Corynebacterium ulcerans, aims at defining the diversity, evolution and epidemiology of the agents of diphtheria and related infections. We study human and animal clinical isolates […]
Population biology of the bacterial pathogen Klebsiella pneumoniae
Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the most urgent threats to public health given its increasing resistance to antimicrobial agents including carbapenems, considered as last-resort antibiotics. In this project we aim to understand the ecological, epidemiological and […]
Genomic taxonomy of bacterial strains: universal nomenclatures for epidemiology and population biology
High-throughput sequencing has revolutionized our abilities to track and characterize novel bacterial strains as they emerge and disseminate globally. Genome-based epidemiological typing systems provide ultimate resolution for strain discrimination. Genome sequences may also be […]
Bioinformatics of genome sequencing applied to epidemiological surveillance of infectious agents
The Institut Pasteur has voluminous activities of microbial strain characterisation, in the context of epidemiological surveillance, biological resource centres collections management, and research. These activities involve National Reference Centers, WHO-collaborative centers, biological resources centers […]
Contaminant oligonucleotide sequences such as primers and adapters can occur in both ends oƒ high-throughput sequencing (HTS) reads. AlienTrimmer was developed in order to detect and remove such contaminants. ßased on the decomposition oƒ […]
Genomic and nomenclature databases of pathogenic bacterial strains
The genomic and nomenclature databases of strains of pathogenic bacterial species are available through the Institut Pasteur BIGSdb portal: http://bigsdb.pasteur.fr. The portal is powered by the Bacterial Isolates Genome Sequence DataBase (BIGSdb) tool developed […]
