Additional Information: Bacteria can profoundly impact the organisms around them, altering fundamental features of eukaryotic biology such as sex, multicellularity, and the evolution of host immune systems. Bacteria also shape the lives of other bacteria in their microbial communities. Here Iíll describe the discovery of a mechanism of inter-bacterial warfare, share insights into bacterial-driven adaptation, and present a new model system for studying host-microbe co-evolution.
Target Audience: Current Students,  Researchers,  Visitors,  Commuters,  Donors & Supporters,  Undergraduate Students,  Graduate Students,  Prospective Students,  Faculty,  Staff,  Alumni,  General Public,  Parents & Families
