The Francis Lab studies the molecular, biochemical, and ecological aspects of the microbial geochemical cycling of nitrogen and metals in the environment. We are particularly interested in determining the key organisms, genomes, functional genes, and molecular mechanisms underlying these biogeochemical processes through laboratory, computational, and field studies.
