Research in geomicrobiology at the University of Georgia focuses on the interaction of microbial life with the Earth systems. We study the role of microbes in biogeochemical processes and leverage concepts of geomicrobiology to achieve environmental sustainability. Multi-omics approaches, along with geochemical and geophysical analyses, are conducted to answer the role of microorganisms in Earth's geological processes. The applications of geomicrobiology include bioremediation, biomining, climate change mitigation, and environmental health evaluations, to name a few.
