Dr Michiel Vos

Lecturer (E&R)

Not Known

I am a lecturer in microbiology at the European Centre for Environment and Human Health, based both in Penryn and Truro. I combine approaches from microbiology, evolutionary ecology and population genomics. Main research foci in my lab are bacterial genome evolution and the ecology of antibiotic resistance- and virulence genes. Recent publications include:

 

S. Wielgoss. X. Didelot, R. R. Chaudhuri, X. Liu, G. D. Weedall, G. J. Velicer and M. Vos. A barrier to homologous recombination between sympatric strains of the cooperative soil bacterium Myxococcus xanthus. (2016) Advance online publication ISME J

B. Koskella and M. Vos. Adaptation in Natural Microbial Populations (2015). Annu Rev Ecol, Evol Syst 46.1: 503

M. Vos, M. Hesselman, T. Te Beek, M. van Passel, A. Eyre-Walker. Rates of Lateral Gene Transfer in Prokaryotes: high but why? (2015) Trends in Microbiology 23.10: 598-605.S
