Project context and summary :

As a part of BIRDY program (, this project aims to study the microbiome composition and its dynamics in early infancy in Madagascar. It will provide genomic knowledge on antibiotic resistant strains and resistance genes circulating in this island. It will identify factors influencing the outgrowth of pathogenic bacteria, including ESBL-PE and decipher the role of the gut microbiome. The developed comprehensive modeling framework will be easily adaptable to other epidemiological questions related to the impact of any human intervention on the gut microbiome and of other environments such as skin, nose or urogenital tract. This project will contribute to the transfer of expertise in genomics and bioinformatics to the IP Madagascar partners.
