Short presentation

The goal of my research is the understanding of the immune system recently discovered in bacteria and archaea, and exploring new applications of the system. The CRISPR system provide adaptive and heritable resistance to virus infection, which mean that cells can acquire resistance to viruses they were previously sensitive to, and that the resistance is passed on to the cells progeny.
