Effects of an experimentally evolved defensive microbe on its host-microbiome system

Abstract:

Defensive microbes readily influence hosts and their microbiome. And, since hosts and their microbiome are not disparate but comprise an integrated hostmicrobiome system, it follows that defensive microbes should alter the system as a whole. Nonetheless, direct evidence on how defensive microbes influence hostmicrobiome systems is lacking. Using C. elegans and their natural microbiome as a model host-microbiome system and an experimentally evolved defensive E. faecalis
