The Mosier Lab is directed by Dr. Annika Mosier in the department of Integrative Biology at the University of Colorado Denver. Our lab conducts research in microbial ecology and biogeochemistry--understanding microbial community structure and function in the environment. Our research focuses on two primary areas: (1) freshwater microbial nitrogen cycling, and (2) microbial responses to environmental change. These themes are addressed by exploring the connections between genes, organisms, communities, and the environment through the application of field and laboratory studies. This research is accomplished through independent and collaborative projects that involve undergraduate and graduate student researchers.
