Host: Steve Gill "Lateral Gene Transfer from bacteria to Animals, Including Humans" Monday, October 16, 2017 12:00-1:00 PM Upper Auditorium (Room 3-7619)

Seminar Abstract: Horizontal gene transfer is increasingly described from bacteria to animals. Such transfers that are vertically inherited have the potential to influence the evolution of animals. Many of the described instances of bacteria to animal transfer occur as part of intimate relationships like those of endosymbionts and their invertebrate hosts, which is consistent with the serial enodsymbiotic theory. Despite this, LGTs between bacteria and complex multicellular organisms continue to be of interest because they challenge the long-held dogma that such transfers could only occur in closely-related, single-celled organisms. Scientists will continue to challenge our understanding of LGT as we sequence more, diverse organisms, as we sequence more endosymbiont-colonized arthropods, and as we continue to appreciate LGT events, both young and old.
