In this talk, I will discuss the ecological and physiological constraints that drive the assembly of microbial communities in the environment, especially in the context of the ocean, and will show how we can use data-intensive approaches to probe the quantitative relationship between community composition and metabolic function in a way that allow us to predict one from the other. During the talk, I will take the opportunity to give you glimpses of what I see as exciting new directions for my lab and the field.
