Centers, Labs, and Programs

Research at the intersection of biological and microbial oceanography and functional genomics.

We analyze the interactions among marine ecology and biodiversity, fisheries, socioeconomics, climate change, and more.

Organic molecules in natural waters can help us to understand the global cycling of biologically important elements like carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus.

Focuses on the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in marine systems.

We examine the diversity and activity of microbial life in the deep sea , including within the deepest ocean trenches.

We use sequence-based approaches, flow cytometry, modeling, and other techniques to explore the structure and function of microbial communities.

We take advantage of molecular genetic approaches to examine diverse questions in ecology and evolution.

Research programs focus on marine biomedicine and marine drug discovery, with an emphasis on cancer and both infectious and inflammatory diseases.

Multidisciplinary marine biomedical research.

Aims to create and use new software tools to explore the unfolding world of genomes.

Focused on the biosynthesis and bioengineering of marine microbial natural products and in the discovery of new enzyme biocatalysts.
