Soil Environmental Microbiology

Soil Environmental MicrobiologySoil environmental microbiology research in the the Department of Soil, Water, and Climate centers around the understanding of the structure and function of soil microorganisms that are involved the processes of Nitrogen Fixation, Biodegradation and Bioremediation of recalcitrant organic and inorganic compounds. Faculty research is also directed at using genomic, molecular, and classical methods to examine the interactions of soil microorganisms with their abiotic and biotic components of soil ecosystems at both the basic and applied levels.
