Adaptation through genes without change to the genome: host adaptation via change in its microbiome composition
Led by Marcus Feldman
This project uses mathematical approaches to predict and interpret patterns of inheritance of microbial diversity under different environmental conditions. Our analysis has particular relevance for medicine, as well as providing theoretical predictions for other fields such as pest control and nature preservation.
