Assembly of bacterial multi-protein complexes
Welcome to the Cascales’lab
The two main projects currently developed in our team are dedicated to understand at the molecular level how the different subunits of the Type VI and Type IX secretion systems assemble these complex machineries in the bacterial cell envelope. For this we are using a combination of genetic, microscopy, biochemical and biophysical approaches.
You will also find on this website our publications, our collaborators and funding sources, the recent news from the lab or where to meet us, and links to see our environment (institute, Marseille,…).
