A study by Sina Rometsch was published as an open access paper in the journal Microbiome

The article titled "Paral­lel and non-paral­lel changes of the gut micro­biota during trophic diver­si­fi­ca­tion in repeated young adaptive radia­tions of sympatric cichlid fish" by HFA doctoral researcher Sina Rometsch deals with the gut micro­biota dynam­ics during the early stages of speci­a­tion. Rometsch's research indicates that a lack of clearly differ­en­ti­ated niches during the early stages of ecolog­i­cal diver­si­fi­ca­tion might result in non-paral­lel changes of gut micro­bial communities.

The study was published in the journal Micro­biome. The scope of the journal encom­passes studies of micro­bio­mes coloniz­ing humans, animals, plants or the environ­ment. Studies on community/host inter­ac­tion with empha­sis on struc­ture-function relation­ship that would lead to substan­tial advances in the field are consid­ered in this publication.

The Open Access paper was written in collab­o­ra­tion with Hector Fellow Axel Meyer, Andreas Härer, Julián Torres-Dowdall, Eliza­beth Yohannes and Gonzalo Machado-Schiaffino.

Congrat­u­la­tions to Sina Rometsch!
