Plant Pathogen Evolution - Honour McCann
Understanding the origins of plant disease outbreaks, how pathogens adapt to novel hosts and coevolve with ancient ones. more
Mutualisms - Hassan Salem
Mutually beneficial species interactions can fuel adaptation and diversification. We explore how mutualisms are maintained, and the consequences of coevolution between a host and its symbiont. more
Ciliate Genomics and Molecular Biology - Estienne Swart
Ciliates are diverse and widespread microbial eukaryotes. We are investigating two of their distinctive peculiarities: the extensive, developmental transformation of their gemline genomes into somatic genomes, and their evolution of multiple alternative genetic codes. more
