Rich Lab, aka SWES-MEL
(Soil, Water and Environmental Science - Microbial Ecology Lab)

At The Ohio State University's Microbiology Dept!    Our lab studies microbial biogeochemistry, within the "genes-to-ecosystems" framework.
We use molecular microbial ecology techniques and strong partnerships with biogeochemists, informaticians, and modelers to investigate how microbes respond to, and mediate, environments undergoing anthropogenic change. We're a diverse group of scientists, working together on a "systems-level" understanding of microbial community interactions with the environment.
