Suggestions for potential research cooperations:
1. projects that study of the gut microbiota as a reservoir of potential pathogens (pathobionts or opportunistic pathogens) that can cause disease given the chance. Thus, an increase in a bacterial taxon that is normally considered commensal can cause disease or disease exacerbation in patients with inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis or with other genetic susceptibilities. 2. We have recently sequences several genomes of E. coli strains from human blood infections following prostate biopsies, which are distinct from other E. coli blood isolates and have been little studied in the past. These not only represent strains of increasing importance, but also tend to have very broad antibiotic resistance, since prophylactic antibiotics prevents infections by antibiotic-sensitive strains.
