Le Laboratoire de Microbiologie et Génétique Moléculaires

UMR 5100

 

 

The Laboratoire de Microbiologie et Génétique Moléculaires (LMGM) studies the organization, evolution and expression of the genomes of bacteria and bacteriophage. Our research ranges from the study of single molecules to living bacterial cells and their interaction with the environment. This research is based on approaches that include molecular genetics, biochemistry, genomics and bioinformatics. The bacteria and bacteriophage that we study are model organisms interesting for fundamental research as well as for applications in biotechnology, the food industry and the medical sciences.

  •   A pause is required to transform

    The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae, commonly known as the pneumococcus, is able to integrate exogenous DNA into its genome during natural genetic transformation. This process requires the development of a transient physiological state named competence. Researchers from the LMGM (Nature Communications – 2017-11-20) have shown that a cell division arrest is programmed in competent pneumococcal cells to ensure that transformation is complete before resumption of cell division. This arrest provides this pathogen with the maximum potential for genetic diversity and adaptation.
