Plenary Lecture 1: Contingency and convergence in microbial population dynamics

Date: 
Wednesday 10th September 2014 - 13:30 to 14:05
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
I will present some results of long-term laboratory experiments in closed microbial ecosystems. Each system is a small world in itself, with its idiosyncrasies and (hi)story to tell. Local population dynamics is monitored in dozens of replicates. Surprisingly, statistical laws governing the population fluctuations seem to be quite simple. But then, even more controlled experiments are performed...
