Evolution of Plant and Microbial Interactions
The May lab investigates the evolutionary ecology of interactions among microbes and between microbes and their plant hosts. They have three central projects currently:
- The role of the plant microbiome in prairie plant health and conservation
- The effects of plant community ecology on microbial community structure and function
- The diversity of plant-associated fungi in boreal systems
For most of their projects, and student projects, the group uses MSI resources to analyse a variety of genetic and genomic data, on levels from individuals to communities.
