Research in Virology and Bacteriology led to major discoveries. This allows us to understand a lot of mechanisms that lead to the control of living organisms. In addition, a lot of different molecular biology techniques including gene therapy use tools that come from viruses. Though, microbes are models that permit scientists to understand networks contributing to gene expression, cellular physiology, immune response and cell transformation.

The main objective of this course is to allow students to understand the recent concepts in virology and in bacteriology and the methodological approaches that are specific to these two domains. The teaching is designed so as to stimulate the students’ passion for research through a training based on open-mindedness and personal initiative. This course will offer an integrative approach to viruses and bacteria biology. This handles cycles of replication, pathology, epidemiology, as well as the evolutionary history of pathogenic micro-organisms.

Conferences will be given in English by experts of the field and will cover all aspects of microbiology.
