Symbiotic relationships provide us with some of the world’s most unique interactions, raising multitudes of questions ranging from evolutionary benefits to biological relevance. My research focuses on unraveling the developmental mechanisms involved in a complex symbiotic relationship between a parasitoid wasp, Microplitis demolitor and its virus Microplitis demolitor Bracovirus (MdBV). I’m utilizing a broad range of genetic-based methods to elucidate the major players in wasp-viral development.
