Microbial Evolution and Co-Adaptation: A Tribute to the Life and Scientific Legacies of Joshua Lederberg: Workshop Summary.


Institute of Medicine (US) Forum on Microbial Threats.


Washington (DC): National Academies Press (US); 2009.
The National Academies Collection: Reports funded by National Institutes of Health.


Through invited presentations and discussions, participants explored a range of topics related to microbial evolution and co-adaptation, including: methods for characterizing microbial diversity; model systems for investigating the ecology of host-microbe interactions and microbial communities at the molecular level; microbial evolution and the emergence of virulence; the phenomenon of antibiotic resistance and opportunities for mitigating its public health impact; and an exploration of current trends in infectious disease emergence as a means to anticipate the appearance of future novel pathogens.
