Andrea Darby

Research Interests: I am interested in host-microbe interactions, and I am specifically interested in the Drosophila gut microbiome. I want to study evolution in context of the microbiome such as how does host genetic variation impact its gut microbiome and vice versa. I currently investigate the potential role the Drosophila melanogaster microbiome may have in the tradeoff of surviving environmental stress and infection.
