Research in insect-microbe interactions
We integrate omics, nutritional ecology and genetics approaches to address three fundamental questions:
1) What are the drivers for the selection and persistence of host-microbe symbiosis?
2) Are animal life history traits and trade-offs in response to nutrition affected by the gut microbiota?
3) How do host-microbial metabolic conflicts contribute to virulence and host pathology?
