Welcome to the Banerjee Microbiome Lab at North Dakota State University!
Microbial communities are the drivers of ecosystem functioning. We use a combination of traditional and latest techniques to elucidate microbial ecological patterns and plant-soil-microbe interactions in agricultural and native ecosystems. Our lab explores how microbiomes can be harnessed through tailored management practices.
“If all multicellular life disappeared off the face of the earth – microbial life might shift a tiny bit… If microbial life disappeared – that would be instant death for the planet” -Carl Woese
