Investigating the impact of the gut associated microbial community on the health of Eastern spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clemens) using a “multi-omics” approach.
My project focuses on using both metagenomics and metatranscriptomics to study how changes in the gut microbiome of a forest pest (spruce budworm) affects host health.
