Microbial Dynamics Seminar at 3pm

Invited Speaker Seminar Series Summer 2020

Catherine Hernandez

"Exploring bacteria-phage interactions and coevolution in the phyllosphere"
Ph.D. Candidate, Koskella Lab
University of California, Berkeley

A brief summary of  Catherine's research:

Despite the resurgence of interest in phage therapy, our understanding of bacteria-phage interactions is still limited to a small group of organisms and culture conditions. Moving forward, it will be critical to understand how bacteria-phage ecological and evolutionary dynamics might be shaped by interacting in an animal or plant host. My research uses experimental evolution to study how the phyllosphere (above-ground plant tissues) can impact interactions between the bacterial plant pathogen Pseudomonas syringae and lytic phages.
