Competition and cooperation in host-associated microbial communities: insights from computational and mathematical models

Abstract:

Our bodies contain a vast number and diversity of microbes. These microbes interact, and these interactions can define how microbes affect us. Microbial ecology and evolution, therefore, are important for both microbiology and human health. However, our understanding of microbial communities remains limited. There is a need for theory that dissects the complexity and identifies the key factors and processes affecting microbial groups. Here I develop realistic computer simulations and populat...
