The ERC advanced grant SoilLife aims to develop innovative modeling platforms to quantify biophysical processes that affect microbial life within soil complex pore architecture and ever-changing aqueous microhabitats. The MicroScapesX project focuses on elucidating mechanisms and processes that guide microbial community self-assembly and function.
Insights concerning principles guiding microbial consortia spatial and temporal self-organization would benefit enhanced functioning multispecies systems for ecological and biomedical applications.
