Small-molecule-mediated interactions in marine symbiotic systems
In complex symbiotic systems, small molecules often mediate important microbe-microbe and microbe-host interactions. Identifying these molecules and their producers, characterizing their biological activities, and explaining their relevance in a native context are challenging endeavors. Here, I will describe our ongoing efforts to develop computational and experimental tools for discovering small molecules and their producers from diverse marine symbiotic systems, and for revealing their role in the biology, ecology, and evolution of these systems.
