Research areas

Gabrielle Rocap is a marine microbiologist interested in the evolution and ecology of marine bacteria and phytoplankton. These tiny organisms are responsible for much of the carbon and nutrient cycling on the planet. Her lab studies habitats as close as Puget Sound and as far afield as the South Atlantic Ocean. They use genomic and computational approaches to understand how genetic diversity in marine microbes impacts global biogeochemical cycles.
