The research objectives of our lab are to elucidate the cellular strategies whereby microbial communities react to various environmental signals produced by their neighbors. Elucidation and characterization of these interactions could reveal valuable information regarding growth-inducing and inhibiting signals, and provide tools for efficient utilization of beneficial microorganisms as well as for the eradication of harmful ones.
