Bacterial RNA Biology team

Anaïs Le Rhun
Inserm researcher (CR)

Our team aim to understand the regulation of type I toxin-antitoxin systems and hijack these systems for therapeutic purposes. More precisely, our research focuses on the regulation of gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. We are interested in understanding how small regulatory RNAs and ribonucleases affect gene expression and virulence in pathogenic bacteria using microbial genetics and RNA sequencing techniques.

Andrés Escalera Maurer

Andrés joined the lab in July 2021 to investigate type I toxin-antitoxin systems from Escherichia coli using the Fast-BacSeq method.

Adriana Messineo
Ph.D student

Adriana started her Ph.D in September 2021. She is studying type I toxin-antitoxin systems using Bacillus subtilis as model organism.

Cléo Berrehail

Cléo started in January 2022. She is looking for novel type I toxin-antitoxin systems in bacterial pathogens.
