Welcome to the Keymer Laboratory
We study molecular biophysics and spatial evolutionary ecology of microbial assemblages in nanofabricated adaptive (habitat) landscapes. We combine theoretical biology with experimental biophysics to study systems microbiology in nano-scale on-chip ecosystems.
PHYSICS: We study the physics of the interface between organisms (cells) and their enviroment (niches). At the nanoscale, this interface blurs into a soft-matter physical (adaptive) system. We are interested in self-assembly, self-replication an adaptation in biophysical evolutionary systems.
