Course #: BIOL 646

This graduate lecture course will focus on current ecological theory in disease ecology. Ecological and evolutionary topics discussed in class will partially represent student interests and may include core microbiome analysis, evolution of symbiosis, comparative germ-free and gnotobiotic studies, historical contingency and co-infection in symbiont establishment, host development and colonization resistance, immunomics, or host immunity vs environmental determinants of symbiotic communities. This lecture course will be taught alongside the optional data analysis lab course, BIOL 647. Students can sign up for either course separately or both together.
