Laboratoire de Chimie Bactérienne
The LCB, created in 1962, is a mixed research unit between CNRS and Aix Marseille University located on the Joseph Aiguier campus within the Institut de Microbiologie de la Méditerranée. The laboratory hosts twelve teams all studying the functioning of bacteria at the molecular, cellular, multicellular and ecological levels. The bacterial species under study are chosen to explore core mechanisms of adaptation, enabling bacteria to sense their environment and form complex multicellular consortia. In particular, the laboratory’s teams are interested in the interactions between bacteria and their hosts, animals and plants, as well as their ability to colonize extreme environments. A long term goal of this research is to elucidate the evolutionary mechanisms that promote the amazing capacity of bacteria to adapt and constitute a formidable reservoir of biodiversity.
Happy to host Nicolas Waisbord for a special LCB seminar about “microbial motility in heterogenous environment” @lcb_officiel @CNRS_dr12 https://t.co/8rEJft92TPRead More
