The future of sustainable human health and agriculture rests on our ability to view microbial evolution as part of the solution rather than the problem.

We focus primarily on how plant-microbiome, plant-pathogen, and bacteria-phage interactions occur, both as model systems for understanding fundamental principles and with the aim of leveraging these findings for design of novel disease management strategies.

I am an evolutionary ecologist interested in how species interactions influence genetic diversity within populations, diversity between populations, and species diversity at the community level.

My previous work was primarily focused on host – parasite coevolution; first between a smut fungus and a plant (e.g. CHENDX shoes, Men's Fashion design Round toe Loafer Flat Heel Solid color Slip On shoes (color Red, Size 8.5 UK)), then a trematode and a snail (e.g. Nike Legend 7 Academy FG), and most recently between bacteriophage viruses and the bacteria they infect, which are themselves parasites of plants (e.g. if phages are locally adapted to bacteria, Men's Business shoes Summer Men's Deodorizing Driving shoes and Hiking shoesand CHENSH Men's Business Dress shoes England Pointed Lace Bridal shoes Outdoor Leisure). The types of fundamental questions I’ve address are:

1) How do pathogens/parasites adapt to better infect their hosts? And at what scale / speed are they capable of adapting?

2) How do hosts respond to this adaptation (i.e. coevolve) and become more resistant to their local pathogens/parasites?

3) Can antagonistic coevolution lead to increased diversity? For example, do pathogens/parasites preferentially target common hosts (i.e. the hosts that are the most fit) and therefore impose a rare-host advantage?

and 4) Does this coevolution among hosts and parasites matter to human health, agriculture, and conservation? Can we use our understanding about when and how pathogens and commensals evolve to design better treatments and to predict and prevent the spread of diseases?

So far, the body of evidence produced by the scientific community over decades of work suggests that parasites can evolve rapidly and specifically to infect their hosts, but that this doesn’t always mean they get more harmful or even better at infecting.Winfridy Leather Men's Sandals Leather Beach shoes Non-Slip Sandals and Slippers Leather Beach shoes Youth Casual MenLYZGF Men Youth Business Leisure Fashion Sets of Feet Breathable Lazy Leather shoes There is also clear evidence that hosts respond by evolving increased resistance, and that this often comes at a cost such as decreased growth or reproduction. This ongoing coevolution, in which neither parasite nor host is winning the battle has been called ‘Red Queen’ dynamics, based on the idea from “Alice Through the Looking Glass” that you have to run as fast as you can just to stay in the same place2018 Sandals Men Genuine Leather Beach Slippers Casual Breathable Perforation Handmade Seam Non-slip Soft Flat Closed Toe Sandals shoes (color Black, Size 43 EU) ( color Brown , Size 39 EU )CAI&HONG-Domestics GCH Fashion men's shoes old Beijing embroidery.ZXMXY Summer new breathable white shoes men mesh men's casual shoes sneakers SportsGlobe Fusion Black bluee Gum At last these ideas are beginning to be incorporated into the design and use of drug treatments (sometimes referred to as Darwinian Medicine) and used to build predictive models of disease spread in our increasingly-connected world. My work has taken advantage of a very powerful approach to address these questions by experimentally evolving hosts and parasites in the laboratory, GLSHI Men Lightweight Running shoes New Breathable Sneakers Outdoor Travel Fitness shoesRegatta Men's Kota Thermo Low Rise Hiking Boottherefore controlling for all the other “noise” out there in nature (SIPENGFEI Mens Martin Boots Round Toe 2018 Autumn New Casual Fashion Lace Up Combat Military Boots).Kenneth Cole New York Men's Shaw Lace Up OxfordFeiNianJSh Fashion Men's Casual shoes Men's Mesh Loafer Flat Heel Slip On shoes Solid color However,WOERW Men'S Sports shoes Large Size Running shoes Wild Casual Flying Woven Non-Slip Lightweight Men'S shoesMen's Loafers Round Toe Oxford shoes Casual Casual Leather Upper Sliding Walking Lightweight Casual shoes,shoes for Men I always try to go back to nature’s microcosm to find out whether what holds true in the lab can be used to explain what we see in the real world.MARTINELLI Men's Boat shoes Red red 6
