Seth Bordenstein


Summary

Seth R. Bordenstein is an Associate Professor of Biological Sciences and Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN. The Bordenstein lab endeavors to understand the principles that shape interactions between hosts, microbes, and viruses and the major consequences and applications of these interactions. Four key questions that drive basic and translational outcomes are:

1. How did life go from one to many millions of species today? How is the microbiome involved in the processes of speciation?
2. How do viral genomes evolve and function in intracellular bacteria?
3. Will bioprospecting Archaea fuel discovery of new antibiotics?
4. What is the relative importance of vertical and environmental transmission of the microbiome in animals?
