Systems Microbiology & Microbial Ecology


Microbial life at microbial scales


We study microbes at scales that matter for their life, including:

  • The interplay between cells and their environment at microscale resolution.

  • The interplay between individual-cell behavior and emergent properties of populations.

  • Microscale interactions between individual-cells within and between populations.


Our lab is part of the Department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology. It is located at the Lauterman building at the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment (Rehovot Campus) of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.
