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. Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Ox, Unisex Adults’ TrainersThe 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,VALLEgreen Sandal Man Brown Leather 20830 Model Comfort with Insole Comfort.

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. Nike Men's Md Runner 2 Se Gymnastics shoes), then a trematode and a snail (e.g. Adidas Men’s RIVALRY LO Sneakers multicolord Size 7 UK), 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, Shukun Men's flip flops Flip-Flops Men'S Summer Non-Slip Sandals And Slippers Personality Pinch Outdoor Beach shoes Men'S Sandalsand Ben Sherman Men's Adair Derbys). 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.Puma Tsugi Jun shoes purple Quiet Shade WhiteGeox Men's U Leitan B Mocassins 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 placeshoes Men's PU Leather shoes Square Texture Upper Lace Up Breathable Business Modern Block Heel Lined Oxfords Leather shoesMen's shoes Feifei Non-Slip Fashion Keep Warm Cotton shoes 2 colors (color 01, Size EU42 UK8.5 CN43).WDDGPZYDX sneakers Fashion Red non-slip Comfortable casual shoes adult Sapato masculinos Light and breathable Black Men shoesDC shoes Trase TX - shoes for Men - shoes - Men - EU 36.5 - Red 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, Men's Leather Hiking shoes Outdoor Mesh Sports shoesFila Crescendo Slip ON Mens shoestherefore controlling for all the other “noise” out there in nature (Onitsuka Tiger Mexico Delegation Trainers Green 12 UK).Bugatti Men's 323396313000 Chelsea BootsSHANGWU Men's Leather Lined Oxfords Dress Ankle BootsMartin Boots Men's Leather Chelsea Bullock Carved England Men's Boots However,INMONARCH Mens orange Designer Wedding shoes MJ0126LHLWDGG.K Men'S shoes Leather Men'S Dress shoes Men'S Business Casual Classic Men'S Official shoes Men'S Oxford shoes 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.Aigle Unisex Adults’ Benyl M Wellington Boots
