Microbiology Lab

Contact April Vuletich at

The Microbiology Laboratory at QFIR was established in the summer of 2009. There are several experiments that are being designed to monitor environments involving microbial cultures, the role that these bacteria play in nature, and their effect between the hydrosphere, atmosphere and geosphere interfaces.
