The Symbiosis (Evolutionary Genetics) group of the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology (I2Sysbio) is devoted to the study of animal and human microbiome from an evolutionary and systems biology perspective. We are also interested in the study of endosymbiosis and natural minimal cells.

Research lines

  • Evolution of animal symbiosis
  • Human and animal microbiome
  • Synthetic biology and minimal cells
  • Insect molecular biology
