Centers, Labs, and Programs

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

Identifying innovative solutions that partner algae research with private industry for commercial success.

CalCOFI is a long-term, interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral ecosystem research program off the coast of California that holistically studies the physics, biogeochemistry, and biology of the marine environment to inform the sustainable management of marine resources in the context of climate change

Research interests are broadly concerned with the use of new technology for observing oceanic phenomena and the development of inverse techniques for their interpretation.

A marine biology laboratory that studies the role of bioluminescence in marine ecosystems.
