Ursel Schütte is interested in understanding patterns of biogeography for microorganisms by applying macroecological concepts to the microbial world. Zaid Abdo is a professor of Statistics and Mathematics and he combines mathematical modeling and statistical analysis using computationally intensive methods and simulations to address current problems in biology such as the analysis of microbial community composition and diversity, experimental evolution, and the barcoding of life. James Foster explores and attempts to understand both natural and simulated evolution by developing and analyzing genetic algorithms. He also investigates biological problems such as the emergence and structure of microbial ecosystems. Jacques Ravel's research interests extend from the application of microbial genomics to explore the human microbiome, to comparative analyses of microbial genome sequences and microbial forensics. John Bunge's research focuses on the problem of estimating the species richness or biodiversity in a community. Bjørn Solheim focuses on Arctic terrestrial ecosystems, in particular cyanobacterial communities and their role in nitrogen fixation, and the impact of climate change on these types of communities. Larry Forney's research centers on the diversity and distribution of prokaryotes. Both field and laboratory studies are done to explore the temporal and spatial patterns of community diversity, as well as factors that influence the dynamics of inter- and intra-species competition and how environmental conditions might influence the tempo of adaptive evolution.
