Welcome to the Neufeld lab, where we explore and exploit microbial communities. We try to understand microbial community diversity and function and do this by developing and applying methods that help us circumvent a longstanding challenge of microbial ecology: how do you study something you can barely see, or experiment with organisms that don’t like to grow in the lab. This site highlights people and publications that demonstrate progress we’ve made toward exploring the “unseen majority”, microorganisms that inhabit our bodies and our environment.
