Kat Milligan McClellan

Assistant Professor

Molecular and Cell Biology

Current Research Interests:Microbe-microbe interactions, host-microbe interactions, ecotoxicology, fish developmental biologyCurrent Research Projects:1. Identifying microbes present in the guts of fish that are related to each other but have evolved in different bodies of water. Mostly 16S sequencing analysis. 2. Characterization of microbe-microbe interactions in media and in hosts. 3. Bioremediation using fish gut microbes. 4. Characterizing the effect that microbe manipulation has on a hosts development, including behavior.
