Corrie Moreau, Entomology, and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology

The Moreau lab focuses on the symbiotic factors that drive evolutionary diversification in ants. One example question is whether seed-eating ants have distinct gut microbiomes to facilitate their use of this food source. Students will characterize the gut microbiomes of ant species using 16S amplicon sequencing and bioinformatics analyses, and gain skills in community ecology and evolution.
