    • Getting the Hologenome Concept Right: an Eco-Evolutionary Framework for Hosts and Their Microbiomes 

      Theis, Kevin R.; Dheilly, Nolwenn M.; Klassen, Jonathan L.; Brucker, Robert M.; Baines, John F.; Bosch, Thomas C. G.; Cryan, John F.; Gilbert, Scott F.; Goodnight, Charles J.; Lloyd, Elisabeth A.; Sapp, Jan; Vandenkoornhuyse, Philippe; Zilber-Rosenberg, Ilana; Rosenberg, Eugene; Bordenstein, Seth R. (American Society for Microbiology, 2016)
      ABSTRACT Given the complexity of host-microbiota symbioses, scientists and philosophers are asking questions at new biological levels of hierarchical organization—what is a holobiont and hologenome? When should this ...
    • Phylosymbiosis: Relationships and Functional Effects of Microbial Communities across Host Evolutionary History 

      Brooks, Andrew W.; Kohl, Kevin D.; Brucker, Robert M.; van Opstal, Edward J.; Bordenstein, Seth R. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Phylosymbiosis was recently proposed to describe the eco-evolutionary pattern, whereby the ecological relatedness of host-associated microbial communities parallels the phylogeny of related host species. Here, we test the ...
    • Using “Omics” and Integrated Multi-Omics Approaches to Guide Probiotic Selection to Mitigate Chytridiomycosis and Other Emerging Infectious Diseases 

      Rebollar, Eria A.; Antwis, Rachael E.; Becker, Matthew H.; Belden, Lisa K.; Bletz, Molly C.; Brucker, Robert M.; Harrison, Xavier A.; Hughey, Myra C.; Kueneman, Jordan G.; Loudon, Andrew H.; McKenzie, Valerie; Medina, Daniel; Minbiole, Kevin P. C.; Rollins-Smith, Louise A.; Walke, Jenifer B.; Weiss, Sophie; Woodhams, Douglas C.; Harris, Reid N. (Frontiers Media S.A., 2016)
      Emerging infectious diseases in wildlife are responsible for massive population declines. In amphibians, chytridiomycosis caused by Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, Bd, has severely affected many amphibian populations and ...
