Master Student: How environmental change and seasonal variation affect the microbiome and helminth community within shrews. Samples over 1 year are available (shrews were trapped every 3 weeks in the Pecos Mountains of NM from April through October). Project includes classical identification of helminths combined with metagenomic techniques for identifying helminth diversity, microbial diversity, and arthropod diet. Student with molecular experience preferred.
Undergraduate Student: Several projects looking at flatworm diversity, distribution, evolution and association with bacterial symbionts.
