Francisco is doing research in evolutionary ecology of microorganisms, with a focus on bacteria, viruses and plasmids. His approach involves both laboratory work and theoretical research. He studies bacterial genetics, cooperation, competition, spite, and sex among bacterial cells, and their impact on pathogenicity and antibiotic resistance.
