Act responsibly, think microbial

The Löffler Lab studies relevant biogeochemical processes in soil, sediment, subsurface and water environments by combining cultivation-based techniques with genetic, biochemical, analytical, meta-omics, and computational methodologies. This integrated approach unifies research themes in the Löffler Lab, and all projects address fundamental research questions, some have an applied component, and several are of considerable public interest.
