Towards understanding an ultimately simple metaorganism: impact of symbiotic microbes and algae on developmental processes of Hydra and their adaption within the host
Inter-species interactions in the freshwater polyp Hydra between symbiotic algae and host cells had been the subject of research since decades since they not onlyDiscover more
Exposure of the host-associated microbiome to nutrient-rich conditions may lead to dysbiosis and disease development – an evolutionary perspective.
