The unit is developing integrative approaches that take into account environmental parameters that influence interactions at different scales: from the finest molecular mechanisms to population integration, or even the evolutionary scale.

The unit’s research lies at the interface between functional biology and population biology, and ecology and evolution. It draws upon human and experimental resources, and leading-edge technical platforms in combination with large (meta/ epi) genomic and transcriptomic datasets to develop different models, both on hosts and their associated microorganisms or pathogens.
