Prof. Itzhak Mizrahi, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

Itzhak Mizrahi from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), Beer-Sheva, Israel, will give a talk:

Intertwining plasmids, microbial interactions and adaptations to gut environments

“Gut environments, densely populated with microorganisms, serve as fertile grounds for horizontal gene transfer and microbial genome plasticity, with plasmids emerging as potent agents in this evolutionary process. This prompts inquiries into the driving forces behind plasmid dispersal across populations, the intricate factors shaping genetic material flow among them, and their impact on microbial interactions and host adaptation. In my presentation, I will talk about findings from our recent studies that probe these questions, offering deeper insights to these aspects of microbial ecology and evolution as well as their impact on the host-microbiome axis.”
