Microbial Interactions The Foster Lab

We study microbes by applying the theory that was first developed to predict the balance between cooperation and conflict in humans and other animals, including game theory, kin selection theory and multilevel selection theory. This work has helped to identify a number of key processes that affect the balance between

New Collaboration on Theory of Microbial Ecosystems Launched

May 30, 2017 A microecosystem of bacteria (their tracks in blue) feeds off organic matter leaking from a much larger spiny white marine diatom (center). A new Simons collaboration will investigate how communities of such marine microbes organize themselves and function. Credit: ETH Zurich / Vicente Fernandez,

How Infection Works, Microbes & Humans — The National Academies

Many people think of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms as our enemy. This perspective, called the germ theory of disease, was first proposed in the 19th century. It maintained that illness springs from the actions of infecting microorganisms, drawing battle lines between "us" (the afflicted hosts) and "them" (the

How can we develop microbial ecological theory? Microbial ecosystems are welladapted to fluctuations in the local environment. Stability of microbial ecosystems against environmental disturbances derives from ecosystemlevel responses which can occur through changes in community composition and phenotypic

Germ theory of disease Wikipedia

The germ theory of disease is the currently accepted scientific theory of disease. It states that many diseases are caused by microorganisms. These small organisms, too small to see without magnifiion, invade humans, animals, and other living hosts. Their growth and reproduction within their hosts can cause a disease.
