Evolution of a protective symbiont in the honey bee-Irene Garcia Newton

Biology Department Virtual Seminar featuring Irene Garcia Newton, Associate Professor, Indiana University

"Evolution of a protective symbiont in the honey bee"

The Newton Laboratory is broadly interested in host-associated microbes. We study who those microbes are, what those microbes are doing , how they persist and infect and what the consequences are to their genomic evolution. Projects in the laboratory range from highly mechanistic and cell biological to ecological and bioinformatic.
