The Center, located at the University of Oregon will bring together architects, engineers, and biologists to understand the complex interactions between microbial ecology and human health
The data core provides data analysis tools as well as a data archive for projects related to the microbiology of built environment.
This project is responsible for fostering communication and collaboration between research groups, as well as conducting outreach to stakeholders and the public.
This project is focused on the analysis of indoor environment fungal samples, using both traditional and sequence-based methods. One of the goals is to develop new markers that would allow more precise identification of indoor molds.
