June, 2020: First Lecture. Christoph will make his first attempt in giving a lecture. For more details check out the teaching page.
February, 2020: Christoph will give a talk at the Evolving Microbial Communities workshop at the MPI for Evolutionary Biology end of April. --cancelled--
December, 2019: Our new lab homepage is online. Although it needs still some polishing.
December, 2019: Our paper about how bacterial interactions determine biodiversity and stabilty in complex communities was accepted in Nature Ecology and Evolution .
November, 2019: Mostly Dani's and a little bit mine paper about how transient invaders cause lasting changes in microbial ecosystems was accepted in Science Advances.
