A WORD FROM OUR ADVISORY BOARD 

A Microbial Foundation

"Advancing our understanding of the microbial world will allow us to harness the power of the diverse microbes that represent an untapped natural resource whose potential contributions to health, food production and habitat restoration constitute the greatest opportunity for biological sciences in decades, With ecosystems and the life they support imperiled worldwide, it is critical that we quickly improve our understanding of the dynamics of our planetʻs microbial foundation.”
