How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Introduction
I am a PhD student in Université Laval developping expertise in edible insects, most specifically on the host-microbiota interactions in the black soldier fly and how they affect ontology. I currently work as a teaching assistant for the CLEIC at University Laval (https://cleic.fsaa.ulaval.ca/). I am a microbiologist and I did my Masters on honey bees populations genomics for the resistance of the ectoparasite Varroa destructor.

Black soldier fly larvae (BSF, Hermetia illucens ) have gained much attention for their industrial use as biowaste recyclers and as a new source of animal proteins. The functional effect that microbiota has on insect health and growth performance remains largely unknown. This study clarifies the role of microbiota in BSF ontogeny by investigating t...

The microbiota’s impact on host’s development, metabolism and immunology has made microbial study integral to the biology of organisms. Microorganisms coevolve with their host and can be vital for development, to the point that some host cannot survive in their absence. Studies have explored Hermetia illucens (BSF) microbiome, an insect prized for...
Article
The contractile capacity of airway smooth muscle is not fixed but modulated by an impressive number of extracellular inflammatory mediators. Targeting the transient component of airway hyperresponsiveness ascribed to this contractile lability of ASM is a quest of great promises in order to alleviate asthma symptoms during inflammatory flares. Howev...
