PIBnet – Pasteur International Bioresources network
The PIBnet program aims at harmonizing microbial strain biobanking and analytical methods deployed within the microbiological expertise laboratories in Paris and throughout the International Network of Institut Pasteur. It is a large collaborative program […]
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: diversity, evolution and epidemiology
Our project on Corynebacterium diphtheriae and related bacterial pathogenic species aims at defining the diversity, evolution and epidemiology of the agents of diphtheria. We use genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics to define the population dynamics […]
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 databases for bacterial epidemiology, population biology and strain nomenclature
High-throughput sequencing has revolutionized our abilities to track and characterize novel bacterial strains as they emerge and disseminate globally. Genome-based typing systems are being developed to replace or complement classical epidemiological markers and have […]
Bioinformatics developments for whole-genome sequencing of microbial agents for epidemiological surveillance
The PIBnet initiative is a large collaborative program that aims at reinforcing microbial strain collection management and characterization approaches and technologies. It involves National Reference Centers, WHO-collaborative centers, biological resources centers and other microbiological expertise laboratories, together […]
Human and ruminant neurolisteriosis: a comparative study (Swiss National Science Foundation, Sinergia)
Neurolisteriosis is a common and frequently fatal complication of Listeria monocytogenes infection in human and ruminants. It has a high impact on human and animal health, but only little is known about its pathogenesis. […]
Contaminant oligonucleotide sequences such as primers and adapters can occur in both ends of high-throughput sequencing (HTS) reads. AlienTrimmer was developed in order to detect and remove such contaminants. Based on the decomposition of […]
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 […]
