Drosophila microbiome

In collaboration with Artyom Kopp’s lab in the Evolution and Ecology department at UC Davis we have been working on characterizing the microbes that live in and on Drosophila.  Key personnel on this project have been Angus Chandler in Artyom’s lab and Jenna Morgan and Srijak Bhatnagar in the Eisen lab.

Two papers have been published from this collaboration:

In addition, we have done some work on Wolbachia associated with Drosophila. 

The Eisen lab work on this project is currently unfunded.
