Abstract

Our bodies contain ten times more bacteria than cells and their activity is essential for our organisms. A true symbiosis exists between humans and microbes, the complex mechanisms of which can only be decoded using molecular genetics. However these bacteria can also cause infectious and parasitic diseases which kill over 15 million people a year throughout the world. To develop effective treatments and vaccines for such diseases, scientists need to know how bacteria outmanoeuvre the body’s d...

Il existe ainsi entre l’homme et les microbes une véritable symbiose dont les mécanismes complexes ne peuvent être décryptés qu’avec les moyens de la génétique moléculaire. Mais ces bactéries provoquent aussi des maladies infectieuses et parasitaires : elles tuent environ quinze millions de personnes chaque année dans le monde. Pour mettre au point des traitements e...
