What we do

Systems Microbiology & Natural Products Research

The research in the Hess Laboratory centers around the multi-scale (from atom to molecule to cell to population to ecosystem) understanding of microbial systems and how they affect and respond to environmental changes. We utilize a combination of in-situ, in-vitro and in-silico approaches.
