The role of peptidoglycan in bacterial cell physiology: from bacterial shape to host-microbe interactions Peptidoglycan (PGN) is a major essential and unique component of the cell wall of both of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. […]
Biology and Genetics of Bacterial Cell Wall
Our research unit aims at studying peptidoglycan (PGN) metabolism to better understand how bacteria assemble a mature and essential PGN that confers rigidity and shape to the cell despite a highly dynamic process […]
