Human impacts have caused a widespread loss of biodiversity, to the point that we have likely entered the sixth mass extinction event on Earth, the first primarily caused by humans. Read more

Nutrient transport in insect-microbe symbiosis

All animals exist in symbiosis with a complex microbiome. The most intriguing, and intimate, form of symbiosis is endosymbiosis, where one partner, the microbe, exists inside cells of the other partner, the animal host. Read more

Understanding and control of electric communication in bacteria colonies, using machine learning

Although initial discussions regarding bioelectricity and its role in the fundamental understanding of various cellular behaviours took place in the 1970s, the bioelectrical view of cells as a more general concept has remained limited to the fringes of biological research for five decades.
