My PhD project, realized under the joined supervision of LBBE and bioMerieux, aims at developping methods for a fine mapping of genetic determinants of antimicrobial resistance.
Indeed antimicrobial resistance has become a major worldwide public health concern, calling for better definition of existing and novel resistance mechanisms. Now with the increase of large-scale bacterial genome sequencing projects, genome-wide association studies (GWAS) seem to be a promising approach for the discovery of new genetic markers from prokaryote genomes.
