    Spontaneous Mutations and Phenotypic Switches in the Bacterium Bacillus subtilis

    Résumé : The ability to generate diversity within a clonal population is important for organisms to survive later onset of selective pressures. For example, in bacteria, antibiotic resistance can arise via spontaneous mutagenesis, which is an example of a genotypic switch, and antibiotic tolerance can arise via persister formation, which is an example of a phenotypic switch. Characterization of both processes is challenged by the difficulty of detecting switched cells, which are rare events, within a large population.
    In this lecture, I will discuss ongoing efforts in my lab to characterize these two processes
