Research

  • Why and to whom my research is important
  • In this study, we explore the genetic and environmental factors that contribute to the pathogen-host interaction. The study organism is the bacterial pathogen Flavobacterium columnare, which causes disease outbreaks in aquaculture at a global scale. The knowledge of the virulence mechanisms of bacterial pathogens is important for the development of new, alternative treatments to be used against bacterial diseases besides antibiotics.
