Microbial Genomics
Program Image  Microorganisms dominate the planet in terms of total biomass, species diversity, and metabolic range and include pathogens and microbes that benefit higher organisms. Many are of enormous present and future economic value. Microorganisms have significant impacts on U.S. agriculture, natural resources, and food safety. NIFA supports research on microbial genomics to better understand how microorganisms live and how they can be manipulated for our benefit.
