Environmental Microbiology - MIC

Research Theme :

The team of “Environmental Microbiology” (MIC team) focuses its research activity on the interaction between hydric microorganisms and their environment. The investigations carried out take into account the biodiversity (bacteria, viruses), the spatio-temporal distribution (planktonic, aggregated or biofilm-organized microorganisms) and the biological activities (growth, survival, horizontal gene transfer, biotransformation) of these systems. In this context, we try to understand (i) the dissemination and persistence of viruses (pathogenic enteric viruses and fecal bacteriophages) and mobile genetic elements (vector of antibiotic resistance genes) of anthropogenic origins once released in the environment, and (ii) the biofilm formation phenomena as well as their reactivity with inorganic compounds (iron oxides). These various research activities address several societal issues such as the bacterial resistance to antibiotics, the infectious risk related to the environment and food, the treatment and distribution of water, the reuse of wastewater, the biodeterioration of materials, and the biofouling of industrial devices.


Key words : water - biofilms – mobile genetic elements - virus - phages - adhesion/aggregation – biointerface properties - survival - biocorrosion - stress response – antibiotic gene transfert
