Tory Hendry, Microbiology

Dr. Hendry is broadly interested in the evolution and ecology of bacteria interacting with hosts. Work in the Hendry lab aims to integrate data from genomic, experimental and field research to determine how host interactions shape bacterial evolution and population dynamics, and how these factors then impact hosts. We use a variety of systems to address these questions, particularly interactions of bacteria with insects.
