Genetic characterization of Campylobacter

Genetic characterization of Campylobacter jejuni and coli strains from different origins (animal, food and urban effluents).


  • Genetic recombination between Campylobacter isolates: antibiotic resistance genes and virulence genes / colonization.
  • Analysis of antimicrobial resistance in Campylobacter isolates from humans, animals and environment. 
  • Genetic diversity using whole-genome MLST in isolates from humans, animals and environment.
