Department of Soil, Water, and Climate

Aquatic Microbiology

Aquatic Microbiology research in the department of Soil, Water, and Climate involves the development of high throughput, robot, molecular methods to determine sources of fecal bacteria and their genes in aquatic systems. Research also seeks to understand, at the molecular and ecosystem levels, environmental factors controlling growth of fecal bacteria in non-host environments, and how these bacteria impact water quality and public health.
