The main interests of the laboratory are bacterial interaction with its host mainly with plant, microbe-microbe interaction, bacterial resistant mechanism via so-called multidrug efflux pumps. In addition to bacterial protein secretion systems, bacterial population structure and bioactive compounds from microbe, plants and microalgae.
