We study the phase structure of an SU(4) gauge theory with dynamical fermions in both the fundamental and the two-index antisymmetric representations. Our lattice calculations show the existence of a first-order confinement transition. Although the presence of two different representations opens up the possibility of two separate confinement transitions, our results are consistent with a single phase transition for both fermion representations.
