The Sela Lab objective is to train researchers interested in food's role in health and wellness. Our research activities rely on sequence-based approaches to investigate the genomics and ecology of commensal microorganisms. Moreover, we characterize mechanistic linkages between health and host-microbial interactions. Our particular study system focuses on molecules secreted in breast milk and their influence on gut commensals.
