Ecological and Evolutionary Signal-processing and Informatics Laboratory

The EESI Laboratory aims to:
  • Decipher organism community structure of environmental samples

  • Analyze the functional expression vs. capacity of environmental samples

  • Investigate the dynamics of communities of organisms across time, space, and other environmental gradients

  • Educate the greater (human) community about genomics, computation, and bioinformatics
