Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Ants, agriculture, and antibiotics"

Seminar | April 11 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall


Cameron Currie, University of Wisconsin - Madison

Department of Plant and Microbial Biology


Our research focuses on the ecology and evolution of symbiotic associations between animals and microbes. We utilize a cross-disciplinary approach incorporating ecological, evolutionary, behavioral, genetic, and microbiological approaches and employ molecular ecology and phylogenetic techniques to examine how microbes shape the biology of higher organisms.
