Welcome to the Environmental Microbial Genomics Group!

The Tim VOGEL (UCBL), Ashley SHADE (CNRS), Graeme NICOL (CNRS), Catherine LAROSE (CNRS) & Christina HAZARD (ECL) labs examine a range of fundamental and applied microbial ecology and environmental microbiology topics in both natural environments and engineered systems. We use a combination of microbial cultivation, experimental, meta-omic and bioinformatic approaches. We are studying the mechanisms and consequences of microbial adaptation, microbiome resilience, the contribution of microorganisms to global biogeochemical cycles, and their response to anthropogenically induced environmental perturbations. The VOGEL & SHADE labs are in the Microbial Ecology Lab at Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 (UCBL). The NICOL & HAZARD labs are in the Bioengineering Department in Laboratoire Ampère at École Centrale de Lyon (ECL) (part of the Université de Lyon). The LAROSE lab is in the Institute of Environmental Geosciences at the Université Grenoble Alps.
