Ecology and Evolutionary Biology of Soil Microbes in Agricultural and Natural Landscapes

These researchers use metagenomics to analyze soil and endophytic microbial communities across agricultural and natural landscapes. Their work explores the effects of plant host, plant community diversity, soil nutrient inputs, management factors, and microbial inoculants or challenge organisms on soil and endophytic community composition and diversity. MSI resources are crucial for the group's capacities to process and analyze the large metagenomic datasets generated in this work. 

A bibliography of this group’s publications acknowledging MSI is attached.
