In a minimalistic, generic model of competitive communities in which evolution is constrained by life-history trade-offs, stable biodiversity emerges with species adapted to different functional niches.
Selective forces imposed by the squid animal host drive rapid adaptation of non-native Vibrio fischeri bacteria through convergent mutations of large effect, unmasking preexisting coordinated regulation of symbiosis.
Building on previous work (Pigott et al. 2014), estimates of areas of potential transmission of Ebola virus are revised and updated to provide a contemporary map for use by researchers and policymakers.
A novel computation tool for microbial community modeling predicts the evolution and diversification of E. coli in laboratory evolution experiments and gives insight into the underlying metabolic processes.
The multi-stage model of carcinogenesis requires the incorporation of aging-dependent somatic selection and life history-dependent evolution of species-specific tumor suppressor mechanisms in order to generalize carcinogenesis across tissues and species.
In a consumer-resource model obeying the physical requirement of flux conservation, metabolic competition between microbes yields consortia of cell types that collectively resist invasion via optimal use of resources.
The global ensemble forecasting niche modelling of 11 vector competent triatomine species revealed climatic suitable regions outside their native distribution including the cosmopolitan vector Triatoma rubrofasciata.
