Background Information
Section Affiliation Molecular Genetics and Cellular Microbiology
Research Interests    I investigate the molecular mechanisms contributing to exchanges of genetic material between bacteria (horizontal gene transfer) and the impact of these exchanges on the evolution of microbial genomes. Our model is a family of mobile genetic elements that are responsible for the dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes in Vibrio cholerae, the infectious agent causing the diarrheal disease cholera.
