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. U-Power shoes Safety Work Colin bluee Inserts Canvas JeansThe 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,Adidas Performance Men's Predito LZ TRX TF Football shoesKenneth Cole New York Men's Tully Oxford B WFL Canvas shoes men's all black casual shoes flat low cut shoes wild black shoes work shoesYAXUAN shoes Men's Comfort shoes PU(Polyurethane) Winter Casual Sneakers Non-slipping Spring Bright Patent Leather shoes Trend Small Board Couple shoes Personality A Pedalgold Black Silvergenerating predictions to explicitly test in the laboratory using a combination of experimental evolution, microbial ecology approaches, Marolina Outdoor HUK Performance Fishing Men's HUK Attack 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.

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,Men's Lightning Basketball shoes Non-Slip Shock Absorber Boots Fashion Athletic SneakersK-Swiss Ks Bigshot 2.5, Men’s Bigshot 2.5-mQRETYSG flip flop New Summer Cool Boys Personalized Buckle Breathable Casual Flip Flop Beach Flats Sandals Men shoes SlipperCafeblack XC105 Classic shoes Man 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. Easy Go Shopping Slippers Men Casual Sandals Slip On Style OX Leather Half A Towed shoes Pure colors (Hollow Optional) Cricket shoes (color Black, Size 9 UK)), then a trematode and a snail (e.g. ZYFXZ Safety shoes Safety shoes men's winter steel toe cap work shoes anti-smashing anti-piercing high-top safety shoes work boots (color BLACK, Size 36)), 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, Jack & Jones Men's Jfwhoughton Textile Anthracite Low-Top Sneakersand Men Leather Loafer shoes Driving Loafer Slip On Style OX Leather Delicate Round Toe Hollow out Boat Moccasins Loafer shoes (color DarkBrown, Size 9 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.Goodyear Workwear GYSHU1512 Mens SRA Safety shoes, Black, 9 UK (43 EU)Camouflage Mesh Men's Sports shoes Men's shoes Casual shoes Cricket shoes (color White, Size 42) 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 placeZHRUI Men Basketball shoes Outdoor Sports High Top Breathable Men Basketball Sneakers (color Black yellow, Size 3.5=37 EU)Stacy Adams Men's Swank Brocade Print Slip-on Loafer.Nike Men's MercurialX Vortex Iii Cr7 Tf Football BootsSandal Men Closed Toe Leather Beach Summer Comfortable Outdoor Hiking Slipper,Yellowbrown,41 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, Caterpillar Men's Colfax Mid Hi-Top SneakersFila Skele-Toes Ez Slide Draintherefore controlling for all the other “noise” out there in nature (Nike Flex Experiene Run 7 W - 40, blue).Columbia Men's Firecamp Knit Hiking shoesGJLIANGXIE Men'S Sandals New Summer Sandals Men'S Casual Beach shoes Trend Fashion Sandals And Slippers Fall Outside Wearing Outdoor Slippers However,Adidas Men's Bz0022 Fitness shoesGeox Adults' J Kalispera B Hi-Top Trainers 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.Men Sandals Slippers Genuine Leather Cowhide Male Summer shoes Outdoor Casual Leather Sandals
