Abstract

Models of host-parasite coevolution assume the presence of genetic variation for host resistance and parasite infectivity, as well as genotype-specific interactions. We used the freshwater crustacean Daphnia magna and its bacterial microparasite Pasteuria ramosa to study genetic variati...read more

Parasite evolution

Parasite evolution involves the heritable genetic changes that a parasite accumulates during its life time. Discover the latest research on parasite evolution here.

Parasite Host Response

The parasite host response refers to the process by which the host organism responds to and interacts with the parasite it encounters. Discover the latest research on this topic in this feed.

Microbial ecology, genetics and evolution

Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.
