    University of Basel, Zoological Institute, Vesalgasse 1, 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    BMC Biol 10:104. 2012
    ..To explore this hypothesis, we characterized host sex-specific effects of the parasite Pasteuria ramosa, a bacterium evolving in naturally, strongly, female-biased populations of its host Daphnia magna...

    Pepijn Luijckx
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Vesalgasse 1, 4059 Basel, Switzerland
    Curr Biol 23:1085-8. 2013
    ..Simulation results show that the observed genetics can explain the maintenance of genetic variation and contribute to the maintenance of sex in the facultatively sexual host as predicted by the Red Queen Theory...

    David Duneau
    University of Basel, Zoological Institute, Vesalgasse 1, Basel, Switzerland
    Proc Biol Sci 279:3049-54. 2012
    ..We further show that exposure to the parasite does not induce hosts to moult earlier. We discuss the implications of our findings for host and parasite evolution and epidemiology...
