Stephen Giovannoni

Center for Gene Research and Biotechnology, Oregon State University

The site features a research profile of Stephen Giovannoni, Professor of Microbiology and Director of the Molecular and Cellular Biology Program at Oregon State University. Giovannoni's research focuses on discovering new organisms in oceans, alpine lakes, and the oceanic lithosphere with long-term goals of understanding the cellular adaptations and ecology of prokaryotes in nature by focusing on species that are abundant and important in biogeochemical cycles. The site provides research descriptions, a list of selected publications, and links to Giovannoni's laboratory home page, Oregon State University, the Microbiology Department, the Molecular and Cellular Biology Program, and the home page and index of faculty for the Center for Gene Research and Biotechnology.
