Brett Barney

Brett BarneyDr. Barney's laboratory is focused on two primary research areas. The first focus involves the study of biosynthetic pathways for commodity fuels and high-value products from select bacteria and algae. The second focus is on bacteria and cyanobacteria capable of biological nitrogen fixation and the role these species play in the biological nitrogen cycle. In relation to this, we are particularly interested in organisms that develop mutual or symbiotic relationships to exchange specific compounds.
