Our lab focuses on weevils/aphids interactions with obligate symbiotic bacteria. By combining physiological observations with microscopy and biochemistry (including protein crystallography and - more recently - epigenetics) we are unravelling the various steps that led to the establishment and maintaining of the symbiotic bacteria.
