Metagenomics, Environmental Microbiomes

Susannah Green Tringe is the Director of the Environmental Genomics and Systems Biology division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.  Her research focuses on using nucleic acid sequence data to study communities of microbes from diverse environmental niches and understand their assembly and function.  Her major research interests relate to how microbes interact with plants to affect growth, health and stress resistance as well as how microbes influence greenhouse gas uptake and release in wetlands and agricultural systems. She is excited to help the BROADN team investigate how the aeromicrobiome interacts with other environmental microbiomes.
