Abstract

Modern molecular technology can provide high resolution genetic information about pathogens. Interpreting genetic and genomic data requires an understanding of the population dynamics and evolution of microbial populations. Here, I will explore aspects of these dynamics, including steps towards connecting within-host and between-host processes.
