Pathogen genomics and microbiota (8 entities)

 Research in this thematic area explores the genomes of infectious agents in relation with their evolution. It also investigates the regulation of the microbiota composition and the mechanisms by which microbiota dysbiosis influences antimicrobial immunity.
