    ..More generally, we provide an example of how sequence analysis can be used to generate testable hypotheses about selection driving long-term phenotypic changes of pathogenic bacteria in situ. ..
  2. Andersen S, Yek S, Nash D, Boomsma J. Interaction specificity between leaf-cutting ants and vertically transmitted Pseudonocardia bacteria. BMC Evol Biol. 2015;15:27 pubmed publisher
    ..These results show that the interactions between leaf-cutting ants and Pseudonocardia bear signatures of mutual co-adaptation within a single ant population. ..

    ..5% ± 1% (n = 5) from the known added pyocyanin concentration to the samples. This inexpensive procedure is suggested for clinical use in monitoring the presence and state of P. aeruginosa infection in patients. ..
  4. Ghoul M, Andersen S, West S. Sociomics: Using Omic Approaches to Understand Social Evolution. Trends Genet. 2017;33:408-419 pubmed publisher
    ..Major tasks for the future are to apply these approaches to a wider range of non-model organisms, and to move from exploratory analyses to the testing of evolutionary theory. ..
