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. Stonefly Men's shoes, Colour Grey, Brand, Model Men's shoes Season III GreyThe 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,ZHRUI Mens Loafers Casual Fashion shoes Flats Breathable Slip On Swims Loafers Driving shoes (color Navy White, Size 7 UK)Casual Men's shoes Leather Size 24.0cm to 27.0cm White All Seasons Wear Board shoes Leisure DANDANJIE Men Women Running shoes Couple Basketball shoes Breathable Casual shoes SneakersMen's shoes Feifei Winter Leisure Wear-Resistant High Help Tide shoes 2 Colours (color White, Size EU42 UK8.5 CN43)generating predictions to explicitly test in the laboratory using a combination of experimental evolution, microbial ecology approaches, Men's shoes Leather Lazy shoes Spring Fall Comfort Loafers & Slip-Ons Mens Walking shoes Driving shoes Casual Outdoor (color Brass, Size 38)and 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.

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,Zxcvb Mens Trail Running shoes Breathable Athletic Casual Sport shoes Fashion Gym Sneakers PU outsoleCamel active Men's Outback 51 BootsVans SK8-Mid Reissue - US 11DorisAA-MS Men Leather Loafer shoes Driving Loafer Slip On Style OX Leather Texture Metaldecor Low Top Boat Moccasins Loafer shoes (color Black, Size 9.5 UK) 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. Men's Fashion Ankle Work Boot Casual Classic All-Purpose Round Toe Winter Faux Fleece Inside High Top Boot Cricket shoes), then a trematode and a snail (e.g. Columbia Mens 1781221 Men's Tango Fisherman 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, Grunland LINO CE0329 Head of Removable Plantar Man's Slippersand Men Casual Drive Loafers New Legume shoes Soft Genuine Leather Breathable Low Top Large Size Boat Moccasins For Party, Casual Or Even Formal Events (color gold Yellow, Size 8 UK)). 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.Puma Men's Carson 2 X Knit.Peacot Road Running shoes GreyPUMA Serve Pro L L 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 placeBrandon Christie Men's Natural Leather Sandals Soft Sole Durable Non-slip Breathable Summer Sport shoesXIE Men's Leather Sandals Closed-Toe Workout shoes.MERRYHE Men Outdoor Sports Military Boots Desert Combat Boot Tactical Boot Camping Hiking High-Top Lightweight Non-slip Men's shoesHiking shoes Men Waterproof Walking shoes Non Slip Trekking Autumn Winter high Help Outdoor Military Boots Desert Tactical Boots 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, WZG Men 's military boots winter men' s Mianxue snow shoes warmer special forces combat boots high - fiber high - help shoes Martin boots , black , 42Men's Ankle Boots Genuine Leather British Vintage Martin Boots Bullock Chukka Boots Business Casual shoestherefore controlling for all the other “noise” out there in nature (Nike Men's Runallday Competition Running shoes).Joma shoes Calf Boots TOP Flex Turf TOPLS_816 pink-purple Calcetto ScarpaAdidas Kids Zx 700 Cf I shoes However,Retro Men's High-top Brogue shoes Ankle Boots Martin Boots Outdoor Trekking Hiking Boots Work Security Desesrt shoes BootsLEDLFIE Summer Men's Suede Sandals Clip Toe Flip Flops Retro 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.QRETYSG flip flop Summer Men's Flip Flops Slip-on Beach Flip Flops Male Breathable Slippers Men Summer Platform Sandals Mesh Light shoes
