Determining the extent to which structure exists within microbial communities. Example questions include: How do different species co-localise in space and time? How does metabolic flux vary in space and time, can it be predicted from transcriptomics? How prevalent is Horizontal Gene Transfer and does it have a non-negligible effect on community behavior? Using machine learning frameworks to approach the above interest, and also answer questions relating to gene function and regulation.
