Microbial Diversity and Evolution

Scientists at the BRC investigate the biodiversity present among some of the least understood organisms.

These include: microbes, including bacteria, archaeans, eukaryotes and viruses.

This research addresses fundamental questions about the interrelationships and evolutionary histories of microbial life forms using genomic, molecular, and detailed morphological comparative approaches.
