Co-evolution of humans and their microbiomes

Our group addresses fundamental questions about the symbiosis between microbiome and human host. We take an evolutionary and genetic approach to identify microbiota with key roles in the host-microbiome relationship, which we then interrogate for their molecular underpinnings in animal and in-vitro models.

Keywords: Microbial ecology / microbiome / obesity / host-microbe interactions / immune system modulation
