The SymbuLab has had a very successful ALIFE conference submission process! We have FOUR accepted publications directly from the lab and one from the awesome ECODE Lab using Symbulation; I’m honestly blown away by the awesome work of my students and collaborators!
Here is a list of the preprints for the papers that have them:
- Keep Your Frenemies Closer: Bacteriophage That Benefit Their Hosts Evolve to be More Temperate
- Endosymbiosis or Bust: Influence of Ectosymbiosis on Evolution of Obligate Endosymbiosis
- Dirty Transmission Hypothesis: Increased Mutations During Horizontal Transmission Can Select for Increased Levels of Mutualism in Endosymbionts
- Extended abstract of Symbiosis in Digital Evolution: Past, Present, and Future
We’ll also be leading a tutorial at the 2022 ALIFE Conference on using Symbulation. I’m very excited for what promises to be a fun (though exhausting conference); looking forward to summer!
