Bacteria: Sex and Death

#esiStateOfTheArt talk by Dr Michiel Vos

Dr Michiel Vos is a senior lecturer in Evolutionary Microbiology based at the European Centre for Environment & Human Health (ECEHH) and ESI. His interests range from fundamental processes shaping the evolutionary diversification of bacteria, specifically though Horizontal Gene Transfer (HGT), to more applied questions relating to the virulence and antibiotic resistance of opportunistic pathogens in the environment. His presentation will cover both areas of research, from ‘bacterial sex’ (HGT) to the ecology of bacterial pathogens.
