Microbial Ecology and Evolution
Supports the Simons Collaboration on Principles of Microbial Ecosystems and other programs
Microbial life on early Earth evolved and changed the environment, thereby enabling the evolution of more complex life. Today, microbes continue to evolve in response to an ever-changing environment, and microbial ecosystems still govern the biogeochemical cycling of the planet and profoundly affect the function of all other living organisms.
Simons Collaboration on Principles of Microbial Ecosystems
The Simons Collaboration on Principles of Microbial Ecosystems (PriME) uses a combination of theoretical and experimental approaches to elucidate the principles underpinning the self-organization, structure and function of microbial communities. More About PriME
