The Gillor lab has a broad set of research interests ranging from the role of antimicrobials in biofilm formation to the diversity and community composition of arid soil environments. What unites this disparate set of topics is the use of molecular methods to study the processes and patterns that control microbial interactions from the most complex habitat, the soil, to a simplified laboratory model system.


Our current work explores the structure and function of microbial communities in desert and agricultural soil as well as membrane biofilms in desalination systems. We are also interested in the role microorganisms can play in the restoration of damaged soil in arid environments.
