Gut colonization model with Escherichia coli
Escherichia coli is a predominant commensal bacteria of the human intestinal facultative anaerobic flora. However, some strains are responsible for intestinal or extra-intestinal diseases in humans. We use a model to study the ecology of interactions in the short and long term between bacteriophages and a pathogenic strain of E. coli within in a complex microbial environment.
