Abstract

We study the evolution of microbial genomes, aiming to understand the mechanisms and selective forces that influence the patterns and rates at which microbial genomes evolve. These studies include obligate host-associated bacteria, some of which are human pathogens, and environmental bacteria isolated from fresh- and saltwater ecosystems.
