Areas of Expertise:
symbiosis, genome evolution

Research Organisms:
aphids, mealybugs and their symbionts

 

Research Focus:

The Wilson Group's research focuses on the symbiosis of sap-feeding insects with their obligate intracellular bacterial symbionts. Working within an evolutionary framework they use protein expression systems and immunolocalization to functionally characterize amino acid transporters at the symbiotic interface of sap-feeding insects.
