Metagenomics and bacterial ecology
Structure-function relationships in microbiomes
We are interested in investigating microbiomes and testing the holobiont theory, as well as predictive models of microbiome functions and temporal dynamics.
Models studied include:
- Airway microbiome in Cystic Fibrosis patients (see here)
- Microbiota of animals and human gut
- Plant-associated microbiome (the SIMBA project and the Crop Microbiome Survey)
- Microbiome of sediments (see here)
