Bacterial-Fungal Interaction experimental evolution Biofilm sociomicrobiology Bacillus subtilis
Professor Ákos T. Kovács studies bacterial interaction and evolution, and the underlying phenotypic and genetic changes with the aim to use this knowledge towards green and white biotechnology. His group aims to reveal the ecology of Bacilli, understand their social interactions during biofilm development and adaptation in the presence of other microorganisms, including soil derived bacteria and fungi, and eventually to their natural niche, the rhizosphere of plants.
