Study Detail

TitleEvolution of defensive and pathogenic microbes in their host.
Study TypeOther
Abstract Defensive microbes that protect host organisms from pathogens are widespread in nature. To elucidate the consequences of microbe-mediated defence on pathogen virulence evolution, defensive and pathogenic microbes were co-passaged through a Caenorhabditis elegans host. Enterococcus faecalis were used .. [more]
