Morrissey WVU

Small actors on the big stage 

Within natural systems, microbial activities profoundly influences the cycling of the elements essential for life including carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur, iron, and manganese. Yet our understanding of these organisms remains woefully incomplete. The Morrissey Lab at WVU focuses on characterizing microorganisms and communities in order to better understand how microbes and their activities influence our world.
