Research Topic

I work on the trade-offs in predatory performance of the soil bacterium, Myxococcus xanthus, against different kinds of prey bacteria, including lab-horses and natural isolates. I run evolution experiments, where I pit M. xanthus against each prey in pairwise interacions, and analyze them to look for the same. I also analyze natural isolates of M.xanthus to see if the trade-offs exist in nature. Further, we want to understand the genetic differences that cause a difference in predatory performance.
