The Kashtan Lab is a new Systems biology & Microbial Ecology lab
at the Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment, Hebrew University.
Our lab is located in the Rehovot campus.

Our lab studies microbial life on surfaces. We are employing systems biology approaches that combine mathematical models and computer simulations with lab experiments and field sample analyses, while fully optimizing the latest research technologies such as advanced fluorescence microscopy and single-cell genomics. We are an interdisciplinary group of experimentalists and theoreticians in the fields of biology, ecology, computer science, and physics.

A main model system for our lab research is the phyllosphere, the above-ground area of plants that is mostly comprised of leaves and is inhabited by masses of microorganisms, including approximately one million bacteria per square centimeter of leaf surface. Although these microbial communities collectively constitute the largest microbe-populated surface area on earth, we know very little about them. We do know that they contribute to plant health and function; that only a minor percentage cause disease; and that due to their huge number they have a global impact on the chemical composition of the atmosphere. A better understanding of the ecology of these microbial communities is necessary if we want to develop sustainable agriculture that has a less toxic effect on the environment and can ensure adequate food sources for the world’s rapidly growing population.
