BIOL 114. Symbiotic Interactions

Plant-microbe and animal-microbe symbioses play essential roles in the development, health and life of organisms and in ecosystem function.  Specific symbiotic partnerships and common themes (e.g., nutrient exchange, modulation of the imune response, specificity of host-symbiont recognition) will be analyzed and discussed.  Readings will be primarily from the research literature.
