Research

Main content

The focus of our research group is on basic questions of the ecology and evolution of bacteria: on biological diversity at the level of individual bacterial cells, on interactions within and between species, and on how bacteria cope with ever-changing environments. The group often works at the level of single cells, and asks how this perspective provides insights that could not be obtained by population experiments. We usually work on basic principles with model systems in the laboratory, and then aim at testing these principles in more natural situations. Our ultimate goal is to further our understanding of the biology of bacteria in nature (including in associations with hosts), and to also provide insights that are of practical use for controlling and harnessing bacterial activities.
