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. Stuart Weitzman Womens Lockmoc Snakeskin Loafers Black Flats, shoes Size 5.5 MThe Koskella lab  takes on this challenge by combining discovery-based science on plant microbiomes with hypothesis-driven experimentation.

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.

A brief introduction to the lab and our recent research:

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. By combining evolutionary theory on coevolution, population dynamics, and infection genetics,L@YC Women High Heels Waterproof Table Cross Ball Dress SandalsCirca Joan & David Renya Womens 5 Black Fashion Knee-High Boots New DisplayJambu Women's Naomi Wedge SandalNaot Addie, Beige Nubuck Quartz Leather Silver Rivets 39 (US Women's 8) M I directly test the underlying assumptions and predicted outcomes of host-pathogen and microbial interactions through the lens of human health and agricultural sustainability.

My previous work was primarily focused on host – parasite coevolution; first between a smut fungus and a plant (e.g. LIUshoes L&L Autumn and Winter Boots Female Flat Round Head Ankle Boots Flat Snow Boots), then a trematode and a snail (e.g. Teva Women's W Azure Flip Sandal), 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, Haiyao outdoor sports beach couple slippers, comfortable wear-resistt men d women slippery upstreamand WSYHXMflip flop Flip-Flops Summer Men's Leather Non-Slip Breathable Sandals Casual Beach Trend Angle Slippers). 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.New Pointed Shallow Mouth Low-top shoes Set of Feet Stiletto Women's shoes Waterproof Platform Women's shoes High-Heeled shoes Black gold (color gold, Size 35)MNX15 Women's Elevator shoes Height Increase 3.9 GIO Khaki 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 placeSchutz Women's Abiha Ankle BootieSoft Casual shoes Men's Casual shoes Leather Comfortable Set of Foot Layer Leather Men's shoes Cortical (color Black, Size 41).Sanuk Womens women Knit Stitch FlatWomen Open Toe Stretch Cloth Cool Boots Fashion Ankle Boots High Heel Sandals Slingback Black Large Size 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, Supra Hammer VTG shoes - pink WhiteJaHGDU Ladies White shoes Loose Cake at The End of The shoes of Students Fashion Tie Wild for Women Casual Whitetherefore controlling for all the other “noise” out there in nature (GIY Women's Platforms Waterproof Leather Ankle Boots Round Toe Lace Up Wedges Heels Motorcycle Short Boots).BalaMasa Womens Plaid High-Heel Fabric Leather Boots ABM13629Naturalizer Women's Harbor Wide-Calf Riding Boot However,Rockport Women's Cobb Hill Sharleen Mary Jane in BlackWolverine 1000 Mile Women's Zadie Black boots 9 B 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.Karen Scott Womens Viivi Faux Leather Stacked Heel Mid-Calf Boots
