Titre
An evolutionary perspective on gene regulation in bacteria
Résumé

Transcriptional regulation in bacteria is often pictured as a network of operons controlled by transcription factors. This architecture, however, accounts only for part of the coordination of gene expression. I’ll present an alternative picture derived from an evolutionary analysis of hundreds of bacterial genomes which suggests that the basic units of regulation are not necessarily operons and that their control does not necessarily involve transcription factors.
