Welcome to the lab of Benjamin Wolfe in the Department of Biology at Tufts University.

We use tractable microbial communities from food systems to study the ecological and evolutionary forces that shape microbial diversity. We also use food as a tool for improving microbial literacy through teaching and outreach.

We love collaborating with both scientists and food producers. If you are interested in working togetherĀ or in learning more about other aspects of the lab, please let us know.
