When you give to the Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology, you're helping us gain a deeper understanding of microorganisms and how they work together in microbial communities. Our researchers apply the most advanced tools of molecular microbial ecology, chemistry, microscopy and mathematical modeling to think like the microorganisms. Armed with your generosity, our researchers can apply advanced engineering methods to create systems that work for the microorganisms, so they work for us.
