InSiDER - Invasion Success Determinants in bacteria and the Environmental Resistome

Environmental bacteria host a wide diversity of genes that can confer resistance to antibiotics, which can constitute a source of resistance to human pathogens. This project uses high-throughput sequencing techniques to identify genes improving colonization and invasion ability – or resistance to invasion – in microbial communities under exposure to sub-lethal antibiotics concentrations.
