We use our expertise in computer science and microbiology to study the evolution and ecology of naturally occurring microbial populations through integrated 'omics and wet lab strategies.

We serve the community of microbiologists by creating advanced open-source software, by following open and reproducible science practices, and by engaging in public educational and outreach activities.

While our laboratory just recently moved to Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ to join the ranks of the Helmholtz Institute for Functional Marine Biodiversity (HIFMB) at Oldenburg, some of the members of our group continue working at our previous home in the United States πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ, University of Chicago and Marine Biological Laboratory.
