Our research focuses on investigating how bacteria colonize the digestive tract of animals without causing disease. This research is critical for understanding the differences betwen bacteria that cause disease and those that provide the host animal with a benefit. In addition, we will learn more about the benefits that the symbionts provide the animal. This website has information about bacteria-animal symbioses, research from my lab, and a website created by students from one of my classes that provides information about many different pathogens
