The Gore Lab studies how interactions between individuals determine the evolutionary and ecological dynamics of multi-species microbial communities. Of particular focus are alternative stables states, community assembly, cross-feeding, and the emergence of "cheater" strategies. The laboratory is composed of an interdisciplinary group of scientists interested in learning from each  other to effectively combine experiments, theory, and modeling.
