Our research is focused on the understanding of basic aspects of bacteria physiology and the complexity of the bacteria-host interactions.

Functional amyloids

Characterization of the amyloids fibers present in the extracellular matrix of Bacillus subtilis biofilms and the proteins involved in its formation.

Bacteria-Plant interaction

Elucidation of molecular mechanisms implicated in biocontrol activity and colonization of host plant.

Interspecies interactions

Deciphering complex bacteria-bacteria interaction traits alongside different ecological contexts.
