The Gore Lab uses experimental microbial populations to study how interactions between individuals determine the evolutionary and ecological dynamics of populations. In particular, cooperatively growing populations can collapse catastrophically and may be susceptible to "cheating" behaviors. The laboratory is composed of an interdisciplinary group of scientists interested in learning from each  other to effectively combine experiments, theory and modeling.
