Project Description

Microbes live freely in the environment but also in association with diverse host, humans, plant or insects. In our group we are interested in understanding how beneficial or human pathogens interact and communicate with plants. To do this study we are working with B. subtilis, B. amyloliquefaciens and closely related B. cereus. Considering the relevance of biofilm in the life cycle of bacteria, we want to really deciphering the functionality of this style of life during the interaction bacteria-plant, how component of the extracellular matrix mediate this communication, and how the plants modulate this bacterial developmental program.
