Centers, Labs, and Projects

Jaffe Laboratory for Underwater Imaging
Research interests are broadly concerned with the use of new technology for observing oceanic phenomena and the development of inverse techniques for their interpretation.
Latz Laboratory
A marine biology laboratory that studies the role of bioluminescence in marine ecosystems.
Brian Palenik Laboratory
We study how marine phytoplankton interact with their abiotic environment (nutrients, copper, etc.) and with co-occurring microbes.
California Center for Algae Biotechnology (Cal-CAB)
Identifying innovative solutions that partner algae research with private industry for commercial success.
A.E. Allen Lab
Research at the intersection of biological and microbial oceanography and functional genomics.
