With us at the MEG: I'm a bachelor student from the University of Western Piedmont in Novara interested in Microbial Ecology; during my staying at the MEG, I will work on the annual assessment of antibiotic resistance in the microbial community of Lake Maggiore. This research collects annual data from four sites on Lake Maggiore, and produces a long-ter series of data to define the stable antibiotic resistome of the lake. It is integrated in the monitoring of the lake's water quality performed within the Limnological researches on the lake of the Italian-Swiss Convention CIPAIS.

Methods: Molecular biology (DNA extraction, PCR and RT-qPCR, and further analyses), use of flow cytometry, epifluorescence microscope, statistical approches.
