Research Axis 2

Eco-evolution of microbial interactions

Human beings are exposed and can be infected by different viruses, bacteria, and parasites simultaneously. Conventional research projects are generally only focussed on one infectious agent, if not on only one of the proteins produced by this agent.

In an original way, Ecofect axis 2 aims, on the contrary, at understanding how different agents, infecting a single host, will interact with each other, being to the benefit of only one of them, or, on the contrary to the benefit of several infectious agents. This will allow a better understanding of the evolution of these microbes in their environment.
