The primary interest of the Dal Bello Lab is to learn how bacteria respond to and modify their environment, and how this, in turn, shapes species interactions, assembly processes, and the structure of microbial communities. Our approach leverages laboratory experiments, data from natural communities, and theory, integrating ideas and tools from community ecology, microbial physiology, and systems biology. We aim to build an ecological toolbox for the management and manipulation of microbiomes.
