Genetics of diet-host-bacteria interactions

My group studies the molecular dialogue governing the mutualistic interactions between intestinal bacteria and their host using genetic and functional genomic approaches. Hence, we are studying how intestinal microbiota in general and Lactobacilli in particular shape juvenile growth and maturation upon chronic malnutrition. To this end, we use two host models, Drosophila melanogaster and Mus musculus.
