It was one long road but it’s an amazing feeling to finally have this study published in . Huge thanks to all the coauthors but especially and . Excited to keep investigating the findings from this work!
Our paper on Negative Frequency-Dependent Selection (NFDS) is finally out! a great collaboration with among others. Main result: Accessory genes in S. pneumoniae are under NFDS and can predict changes in fitness over time
Predicting how pathogens will evolve is challenging; &co predict population changes in Streptococcus pneumoniae after vaccination, using a model of NFDS acting on accessory gene products #PLOSBiology

#PLOSBiology: Frequency-dependent selection can forecast evolution in Streptococcus pneumonia: we are able to forecast the equilibrium post-vaccine population composition and assess the invasion capacity of emerging lineages
