Research in the Handelsman lab focuses on understanding diversity in microbial communities and their role in infectious disease. In particular, we are interested in understanding the genetic basis for stability of microbial communities, the role of a gut community as a source of opportunistic pathogens, and the soil microbial community as a source of new antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes.
