Welcome! You are at the site of the Laboratory of Ecology of pathogenic bacteria.
We deal with molecular microbiology applying its methods to studies of ecological plasticity of pathogenic bacteria.
Listeria monocytogenes is the model object to study molecular mechanisms of intracellular parasitism.
In the frame of the accidental parasitism theory developed by Prof. Litvin for sapronose infectious agents we study the role for virulence factors in interactions between pathogenic bacteria and other members of the natural ecosystems such as protozoa, algae etc.
Summer in our laboratory.
