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.
