This Master 2 graduate program in Fundamental Microbiology is based on recent advances in genetics, genomics, cell biology and microbial physiology to provide multidisciplinary training in research and research. Microorganisms can be studied by targeted, global and / or synthetic approaches on molecular, cellular or integrated scales (microbial communities, host organisms).
Microorganisms (bacteria, archaea, fungi, protists, viruses ...) are the main terrestrial biological entities in quantity and diversity and are at the heart of the main processes of the living. Fundamental Microbiology covers a wide range of topics focusing on microbial physiology & genetics, and evolution of microorganisms, with some openings on microbial pathogenesis and ecology. These questions are explored at the molecular, cellular or microbiota-type ecosystems, in order to understand and control the immense variety of microbial processes.

In September 2019, the 3-week practical course entitled "Struggle for life" will focus on the analysis of molecular mechanisms governing host adaptation of bacteriophages and pathogenic bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae). The practical course will take place within the MICALIS Institute within the teams:
- "Dynamics of bacteriophage genomes" (Marie-Agnès Petit, François Lecointe)
- "Determinant of Microbial Adaptation" (Philippe Gaudu, Delphine Lechardeur, Alexandra Gruss, Jamila Anba-Mondolini).
