Microbial 'omics


Brought to you by

From the human gut and oral cavity to terrestrial and marine ecosystems, 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 strive to serve our community by creating advanced open-source software, by following open and reproducible science practices, and by engaging in public educational and outreach activities.

Located at the University of Chicago and affiliated with the Marine Biological Laboratory, we are constantly looking for collaborations that would challenge us with novel and intriguing questions.
