The Environmental Microbiology and Molecular Research Group at BGSU is comprised of individuals performing diverse work concerning important societal issues that are of serious concern such as harmful algal blooms (Bullerjahn Lab) in the Great Lakes, antibiotic discovery against human and plant pathogens (H. Wildschutte Lab), metagenomics studies of Antarctica’s Lake Vostok microbial community (Rogers Lab), and ice nucleation by microbes in freshwater lakes (McKay lab). Cutting-edge molecular research includes plant genomics (Morris Lab) and humans and canine genome evolution and diversity using unique collections of sequenced genomes (J. Wildschutte).
