Résumé
This action is the first step of a larger project that aims at studying the impact of the insect gut microbiota on infectious processes by various pathogens. It is included in the general framework of biological control to regulate "harmful" insects as alternative to chemicals. We chose as a host modela notorious polyphagouslepidopteran pest, Spodoptera exigua. The two years of funding will serve to acquire meta-omics dataof reference for gut microbiota in the chosen insect model.
