EVOLDIS (Evolution of dissipative systems)

  • 2012 – 2015 (completed)
  • Funding : University of Geneva – DIP
  • This project uses a bacterial model system to study the theory that the complexity of life evolved in response to free energy gradients to dissipate this energy through irreversible (entropy producing) processes

Antibiotic resistance of multidrug resistant according to different climatic conditions

This project identifies the possible antibiotic resistance mechanisms prevailing in environmental bacteria, under tropical versus temperate climatic conditions, incorporating international surveillance to provide baseline information on the prevalence of antibiotic resistance bacteria and their resistance genes from hospital and communal effluents and their spread into the aquatic ecosystem.
