Microbial Ecology, Diversity, and Geochemistry
Our current projects are focused on:
- Uncovering how microbes, including P. fluorescens, can colonize a host despite the presence of an intact immune system.
- Identifying plant genes that shape microbiome community.
- Identifying bacterial and plant genes that affect the functional outputs of the microbiome.
Plants shape their associated microbes into communities that are distinct from surrounding soil. This figure shows the relative enrichment and depletion of certain bacterial phyla in the Arabidopsis rhizosphere (inner circle) relative to the starting community in bulk soil (outer circle).
