De novo mutations in human skin microbiomes

There is an enormous potential for evolution within each of
our microbiomes, with billions of new mutations being created each day.
In this talk, I will highlight the power of tracking within-person
evolution for understanding microbiome community assembly, identifying
genes critical to long-term survival, and for understanding evolutionary
principles. I will focus on examples from the human skin microbiome, a
tractable system for understanding the intersection of ecology of
evolution in the microbiome.
