Mandy Gibson was recently awarded NIH MIRA grant "A general test of the genetic basis of parasite resistance across genetic and environmental contexts” to study the evolution of parasite resistance across genetic and environmental contexts. We plan to use experimental evolution, evolutionary theory, transgenic lines and GWAS and QTL mapping withC. elegans and its natural parasites. The Gibson Lab also earned a Jeffress Trust Award "Modeling the Evolution of Disease Resistance in a Variable World” to support theoretical work in the lab!
