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. BZees Pisces Women's Slip On shoesThe Koskella lab takes on this challenge by combining discovery-based science on plant microbiomes with hypothesis-driven experimentation. Our research examines host-microbe and microbe-microbe interactions by first identifying patterns in nature and then, in line with current theory where available,MUMUWU Men's Fashion Ankle Work Boot Casual Outdoor Round Toe Winter Faux Fleece Inside High Top Boot Winter BootsNature Breeze Harley 12 Womens Military Lace up Studded Combat Boot Bugatti Men Lace-Up shoes Grey 341730616900-1500Men's Basketball shoes 2018 Fall Comfort Athletic shoes High-Top Lace-Up Sneakergenerating predictions to explicitly test in the laboratory using a combination of experimental evolution, microbial ecology approaches, Reebok Mens Ridgerider 4.0 Leather Walking shoesand molecular biological techniques.
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. Jambu Womens Navajo - Water Ready Flat SandalChaco Men's Updraft Bulloo SandalWe integrate ecological and evolutionary thinking with cutting-edge microbiological and molecular approaches to gain insight to microbiome establishment and function, within-microbiome interactions, and the role that microbiota and phages play in shaping disease.

A brief introduction to the lab and our recent research:
Bostonian Men's Narrate Wing Oxfords
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,Feifei Men's shoes Winter Fashion Casual Retro Leather shoes 3 colors (color 03, Size EU40 UK7 CN41)Clarks Josh Twin Gore Men's Slip OnDrMartens Tower Steel Toe 6 Eye Work Boot Mens R16113001Men's Formal shoes Cowhide Fall Business Oxfords Proof Waterproof Footwear Large Size：5-10.5 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. Kenneth Cole New York Womens Babbot Sporty Low Wedge Espadrille with Ankle Strap Espadrille Wedge Sandal), then a trematode and a snail (e.g. Frye Women's Ivy Deco Stud Low LACE Sneaker), 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, Clarks Men's Unbizley Plain Leather Lace-Up shoesand Lakai Footwear Owen Kids Navy Suedesize 1 Tennis shoes, Navy Suede). 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?

Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B: Biological Sciences, rspb20112259.
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.Geox Mens Ravex 1 SneakerBates Mens Velocitor Lightweight Boot 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 placeOfficial Brand Giorgio Bexley Slip On shoes Mens Black Loafers Flats Formal FootwearMen's Leather shoes, Spring Fall Casual Driving shoes, Loafers & Slip-Ons, Single shoes Work shoes, Fashion Comfortable (color B, Size 45).OCHENTA Women's High Top Wedge Hidden Heel Suede Leather Fashion SneakerMen's Athletic shoes,Leather,Spring Fall,Comfort Low-Top Sneakers,Breathable Running shoes,Lace Up shoes,Lightweight Walking shoes,Non-Slip Travel,Fitness shoes (color A, Size 43) 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.
