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