Structure, function and evolution of chemosensory systems.

Richard Benton lab


I am interested in understanding how ecosystems of microbes evolve over time, and how they are shaped by the interactions taking place between individual microbial cells.

Andrzej Stasiak lab


DCB - Department of Computational Biology

We are interested in applying computational methods and evolutionary modeling to test hypotheses about the evolution and adaptation of species using both genmic, phenotypic and ecological data.

Nicolas Salamin lab

DEE - Department of Ecology and Evolution

We try to understand how the interplay of population structure, trait architecture, and  selection affect evolutionnary processes. For this, we use different approaches, from theory and the development of statistical tools to data mining and field observations.

Jérôme Goudet lab

DMF - Department of Fundamental Microbiology

The Keel lab investigates molecular mechanisms used by root-colonizing beneficial bacteria to protect agricultural crop plants against pest insects and fungal pathogens.

Christoph Keel lab


We study microbial symbiosis with a focus on gut microbiota-host interactions. Our current work is centered on honey bees and related social bee species.

Philipp Engel lab


The fundamental goal of my research is to understand how bacteria adapt to changing environmental conditions and how we can benefit from bacterial activities.

Jan van der Meer lab
