The Knight Lab uses and develops state-of-the-art computational and experimental techniques to ask fundamental questions about the evolution of the composition of biomolecules, genomes, and communities in different ecosystems, including the complex microbial ecosystems of the human body. We subscribe to an open-access scientific model, providing free, open-source software tools and making all protocols and data publicly available in order to increase general interest in and understanding of microbial ecology, and further public involvement in scientific endeavors more generally.

Check out the latest research coming from the lab which has been published in peer-reviewed journals.

Meet the people who make up the Knight Lab, and also our distinguished collaborators. Find out about open opportunities in the lab as well as other opportunities in bioinformatics and related fields at other institutions.
