New Herptile Microbiomes Project

A new project is launching for studying the Microbiome of Herptiles and the impacts of specific fungi. The work is supported by the NSF Understanding the Rules of Life: Microbiome Interactions and Mechanisms and will support a four year project to examine the dynamics of microbiomes from wild and captive animals, manipulation experiments, and genomic and metabolomic profiling of these communities and individual microbial members.
