During his visit to the SImons Centre in Oct 2016, Szabolcs Semsey will continue his collaboration with Aswin Seshasayee and Sandeep Krishna on phage-bacteria interactions and the dynamics of restriction-modification systems as bacterial defences to phage. In addition, he and Sandeep Krishna, along with Sandeep's student Akshit Goyal, have been working on mathematical models of assembly of microbial communities and will use this opportunity to explore these models further. Szabolcs will also give a talk at the meeting on Conflict and Cooperation in Cellular Populations. All of these activities fit squarely within the Simons Centre theme of Cellular Communities.
