Description of Research
The Christner Research Group is interested in the physiology, ecology, biogeochemistry, and molecular adaptations of microorganisms inhabiting environments of the cryosphere and atmosphere. Using a combination of laboratory and field-based research, we seek to elucidate the novel properties of microorganisms that survive under low extremes of temperature and water/energy availability.
